It must be annoying for the NASA Image Faking Department to have to spent so much time on their fake images these days. Back in the day a few fuzzy blobs and it’s job done.

The first full-color image is finally here!! The photo represents an area in the sky the size of a grain of sand held out at arms length by someone on the ground and contains countless thousands of galaxies!!!

And it's not even a science image.  It's an engineering image from the Fine Guidance Sensor test.
This Fine Guidance Sensor test image was acquired in parallel with NIRCam imaging of the star HD147980 over a period of eight days at the beginning of May. This engineering image represents a total of 32 hours of exposure time at several overlapping pointings of the Guider 2 channel. The observations were not optimized for detection of faint objects, but nevertheless the image captures extremely faint objects and is, for now, the deepest image of the infrared sky.

A very good photo...  These are the kinds of photos that keep you going.

Is that the Very Deep Field or Ultra Deep Field?

Also, these are just test images. This is just the first stuff they've published.
And it's better than some of the best Hubble images which took weeks to produce.
It's like the first couple of games or demos of a next gen console, before coders have worked out how to really push the hardware.
There's going to be some incredible stuff coming in the next few years.

i picked a handful of high-redshift targets for this collaboration. i am extremely excited.

I have visited from prestigious research institutions of the highest caliber, to which only our administrator holds with confidence.

Here's a little perspective on one of the test images:

Thats very cool.  Are the targets mostly quasar/pulsar/magnetar type objects?

massive irregular/peculiar galaxies that are at the limits of what hubble can see. one of CEERS' primary goals is to better understand how galaxies evolve over cosmic timescales — how do galaxies accumulate mass over time? how often do they crash together? how do their shapes evolve? what role does star-formation play in all of this? those sorts of questions.

NOVA on PBS just did a show on JWST, including the just released images.  Someone had mentioned how the Hubble deep field and ultra deep field images took many days of observations while the similar JWST image took a fraction of that time.  They said that, because of JWST's light gathering ability, pretty much every image it takes will be a deep field.
