Still has to reach L2, establish its orbit and cool down. Also a lot of testing and calibration yet to be done - about six months worth.

I like that it looks like a bumble bee.  Black and yellow. With octangle bee cave shapes.

Taken from L+26hr to L+33hr, 1min exposure, 470 subs, RASA 8 telescope, ZWO ASI183mm pro mono camera, Astronomik H-alpha 12nm filter, iOptron CEM40 equatorial mount.

A friend has a similar setup, on a poured post sunk into the ground with the concrete floor poured on rigid foam and not in contact with the post, to reduce vibration. He's shown me the setup but has never offered to let me sit in his observatory and check things out. I guess it's his "me time" because his wife doesn't even bother him for a look.

So Webb is slightly less than 4.5 days into its journey to L2, and is 40% of the way there (360k miles down, 540k to go).   It's traveling at about 1 mile every 2 seconds.  It is going to slow down gradually as it gets near L2, and almost automatically "click" into orbit upon arrival.    That just blows my mind.
