STScI (Space Telescope Science Institute) recently released images of NGC 628 and HD 40646, taken by the James Webb Telescope.

These can be seen below.

The images were not subjected to colored filters or colored editing, thus resulting in their original shades of black, gray, and white.

Also, they were made much smaller than those shown below, thus resulting in an illusion of false decalibration.

The images that James Webb made are approx. the same calibration level as those shown by NASA a few days ago. And if you added some color filters or made some edits to the images, then they would look spectacular.

Observations on NGC 628 were relatively short. Scientists initially wrote in the scientific observations program that Webb would look at NGC 628 in 5 stages, for a total of almost 4 and a half hours.

And the observations on the HD 40646 lasted even less. The exposure time of the telescope was around 55 minutes.

However, scientists promise spectacular observations of Webb in the future, and we hope to see them as soon as possible.
