Hey, Space Placers!
Here is JWST last night at 563,500 miles distant as imaged in my 4.5" f/4 Unistellar telescope.
I was able to image JWST because the tennis court sized 5 layer sunshield is VERY reflective of sunlight.
Just a few minutes ago the JWST Mission Operations Center completed the last step in the full deployment of the sunshield: this was a HUGE step in the mission as it was critical for mission success.
Up next will be the optical deployment process.
