The video linked in the webpage above is also worth checking out.

The "mercury cadmium telluride" used in the super sensitive IR camera sensor sounds formidable!

I watched the launch and i am so excited about the future photos JWST will deliver.
Whilst some are polluting space, there are signs of humanity this telescope.

You are welcome.  Hope you enjoy the video as well!

At least there should be no debris created by human around the L2 point (yet).  It will be only a couple of month of wait until we see some unbelievable image!

Hi Akira, thanks again for the new links.  Great that it is performing at or above specifications - unlike poor Hubble when it was first commissioned.

Can't wait to see what it can do over the coming years

You are welcome, Hugh!  I'm also looking forward to seeing what this highly advanced telescope will offer!
