Re: James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) - 6.5m mirror, L2 orbit

If the Hubble Telescope got its mission extended to sometime after the James Webb telescope is launched and operational, would it be possible to point the two telescopes to the same spot in space and get an even clearer picture than the telescopes could get by themselves? Like the two Kecks do, but space based. Im a novice so please be kind. Thanks

Delays are not cost free and this telescope has already been a money pit exceeding even what we would typically see as its beyond cutting edge and was pushed to be more by design.
