Low Light James Webb Space Telescope

Engineers Matt Macias and Eve Woolridge take a close look at the James Webb Space Telescope's primary mirror at NASA Goddard in this new image.

 

The secondary mirror is the round mirror located at the end of the long booms, which are folded into their launch configuration. The team is prepping to rotate the telescope so the instrument module can be installed behind the primary mirror.
