Details

After a successful career as a musician, William Herschel (1738–1822) turned to astronomy, discovered the planet Uranus and, with royal patronage, constructed the largest telescopes in the world. This double portrait of William and his sister Caroline reveals how the siblings pioneered techniques still in use today as they produced the first comprehensive catalogue of every visible object in the night sky.
