In the hands of William Herschel, the telescope became a powerful scientific tool. Herschel had a talent for telescope making that matched his passion for studying the heavens. He began building them in the 1770s. Soon he was creating the most powerful telescopes in the world and looking deeper into the Universe than ever before.
