Caption

William Parsons. Portrait of British astronomer and obsessive telescope-maker William Parsons (1800-67), 3rd Earl of Rose. Parsons' "Leviathan" telescope of 1845 had a six foot diameter mirror. His studies of nebulae were valuable, but the climate of Birr Castle limited observational work.
