QUINCY — Recently released photos from the new James Webb Space Telescope show stunning images of the universe.

Interested in learning how to produce images with your own equipment? The Quincy Astronomy Club is presenting a class at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in Room A021 at John Wood Community College. Guest lecturer Doug Foote will instruct the club on his techniques for imaging the heavens. Foote will show examples and describe the ways to produce beautiful photos with your own cameras and telescopes.

The Astronomy Club, formed by local amateur astronomers, seeks to teach, explore and expand minds about space and the universe. Lectures are held monthly, usually on the last Thursday of the month. The club also holds monthly evening observing sessions as weather and observing conditions permit. Local amateurs with their telescopes guide the observing sessions.

To find JWCC Room A021, drive to the southeast corner of JWCC and enter at the SE doors.
