I haven’t been excited for much recently, but I’m excited for this!

This test image is already a bit mind blowing and it’s unfiltered, uncalibrated, and never meant to be seen by humans. Taken by the fine guidance sensor these images would normally never get sent back due to bandwidth limitations, once used to keep track of a target they would be trashed.

This with its hundreds/thousands of galaxies, some literally invisible to the human eye, is a garbage image compared to the full sensor sweet:

Woo NASA scooped themselves and released the first of a set of images today with the rest tomorrow. I can’t seem to hotlink to NASA… eta: Found a link.

NASA Webb’s First Deep Field this image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 is overflowing with detail. Thousands of galaxies – including the faintest objects ever observed in the infrared – have appeared in Webb’s view for the first time. This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground

To give a comparison of how much brighter and sharper this is, Hubble’s first deep field image was a total of 140 hours of exposure time over ten consecutive days, Hubble’s extreme deep field was 23 days of exposure time composited from 10 years of observations. I don’t know the exact exposure time for this image but it’s magnitudes less.

There are some good side-by-side comparisons with Hubble in this article:

12 and a half hours.

Imagine what JWST would resolve with 23 days of exposure.

I watched the big reveal live and I probably won't be doing that again. The production quality was just painful. I was very forgiving since that isn't their primary mission, but next time I will just head straight to the image gallery on their site.

Hubble may think we don't care any more.

I downloaded the full resolution Webb images and pull them up on my 4K monitor and zoom in all around. Looking at the full size image it looks quite a bit better than Hubble, but zoom in and you can really see how much more improved the images are. Zoom in on those faint red-orange dots and you will see what the early universe looked like.
