Herschel reflecting telescope
View of an astronomical reflecting telescope of 40-foot length, employing a 47-inch mirror, with two male figures to give scale. Designed and built by William Herschel and used by William and Caroline Herschel, the telescope was installed at Observatory House, Slough, England. The instrument was constructed in the period 1785-1789, with the first observation through it being made on 19 February 1787. It was the largest such telescope in the world when completed and it was eventually dismantled in 1840. Plate appearing at pp.378/379 of the Bibliotheque britannique; ou recueil extrait des ouvrages Anglais périodiques…, tome premier (Geneva, 1796).
