James Webb Space Telescope @ Langrange 2

This week the JWST reached it’s final destination, the 2nd Lagrange point, where he will turn ellipses as long as fuel allows.

It took a lot “analysis” to be sure of the identification, but I could image the telescope last night. The apparent magnitude was pretty low, estimated around mag. 17.0

At the upper left of the object is a small triangle of stars, with a fourth weaker star in the triangle. This star is listed as magnitude 16,5.
