Michael Hoskin shows that William Herschel was the first observational cosmologist and one of the first observers to attack the sidereal universe beyond the solar system: Herschel built instruments far better than any being used at the royal observatory. Aided by his sister Caroline, he commenced a great systematic survey that led to his discovery of Uranus in 1781. Unlike observers before him, whose telescopes did not reveal them as astronomical objects, Herschel did not ignore misty patches of light. Hoskins points out Herschel's achievement in surveying, cataloguing, and describing them as nebulae and even coming to the correct conclusion that their structure evolved over time, with Newton's gravity being the agent of change. Herschel s surveys established a new astronomy looking at the universe rather than the planets! Michael Hoskins account includes sketches and diagrams from Herschel's manuscripts in the Royal Astronomical Society Archives in which he attempts to delineate the structure of the Milky Way galaxy. While it is well-known that Herschel was a revolutionary in telescope design who constructed the world s largest telescopes, Hoskin also gives the full picture of the man as an entrepreneur who built and traded some 400 telescopes. Hoskin also pays close attention to the role of William's sister Caroline Herschel, who is usually portrayed as a helpmate to her brother. But in fact she became a significant astronomer in her own right"--Provided by publisher2185ocn003471517book19000.74Sime, JamesWilliam Herschel and his workBiography20211ocn003569850book18810.77Holden, Edward SSir William Herschel : his life and worksHistoryBiography+-+95908078961979ocn733061937file20100.12Holmes, RichardThe age of wonder how the romantic generation discovered the beauty and terror of scienceHistory"The Age of Wonder" explores the earliest ideas of deep time and space, and the explorers of "dynamic science": an infinite, mysterious Nature waiting to be discovered.

Astronomers of the time might distinguish themselves either as makers of telescopes, or as observers, or as theoreticians. Herschel distinguished himself in all three. In November 1778, while a musician in the English spa resort of Bath, Herschel as an amateur observer ground and polished for his 7-ft reflector a mirror that was simply the finest anywhere; and using it he discovered the planet we know as Uranus. This won him the patronage of the King and with it the opportunity to give up music and dedicate himself to astronomy. With funding from the King he then built himself the biggest reflector ever seen, and he conducted a brisk trade in telescopes, the crowned heads of Europe competing to be allowed to buy a Herschel reflector"--1788ocn000726881book19330.74Lubbock, Constance AThe Herschel chronicle; the life-story of William Herschel and his sister, Caroline HerschelHistoryBiography1571ocn074029420book20070.10Venkatraman, PadmaDouble stars : the story of Caroline HerschelBiographyExamines the life of eighteenth-century English astronomer Caroline Herschel, discussing her early bout with typhus, and focusing on her work in astronomy during which she helped her brother William and made independent discoveries of her own+-+97950844061496ocn712644488book20110.77Bratton, MarkThe complete guide to the Herschel objects : Sir William Herschel's star clusters, nebulae, and galaxiesHandbooks, manuals, etc"Sir William Herschel's contributions to astronomy during the late eighteenth century are unrivalled.
