The James Webb Space Telescope Through an Astrophotographer's Eyes, Presented by Sabrina Minnick

Many of us have seen the incredible images of NASA's JWST by now, but this month we'll have a chance to look at the exciting telescope from an astrophotographer's perspective. We'll touch on:

- Optical design

- Calibration, collimation, and artifacts

- Field of View - Camera sensors, filters, and spectra

- From data to images: "Are those the *real* colors?"

Hope you can join us for this fun and insightful discussion!
