This design celebrates William Herschel (1738 - 1822), the innovative astronomer.
Migrating to Britain at 19 years old as a budding musician, Herschel soon turned his attention from stardom to star-gazing.
Dissatisfied with the telescopes of his time, he learnt to construct his own and went on to build more than 400 during his career - the largest being over 40-foot long.
Thanks to his new creations, Herschel found himself closer to the stars than anyone before.
His pioneering spirit and deep survey of night skies led him to new moons, thousands of stars and the discovery of a new planet: Uranus.
