James Webb Space Telescope!

It was already very exciting to wathc the launch, and to follow the subsequent deployment actions. Wether in Belgium did not allow any imaging of this object.

Until last night a clearing allowed me to capture this object at a distance of 882211 km (twice the distance to the move) moving away from us with 0,460 km/second.

The magnitude can be estimated around 13,5, comparable to the little stars it was flying by at the time of capture (Wednesday january 5th, 1:09 UT). Imaging was done with the Esprit 120mm @ 884mm FL and 120-second frames with an ASI2600MC.
