Orion and Taurus with Herschel's Telescope and George's Harp Orion and Taurus with Telescope of Herschel and Harp of George. The new constellations were in honor of William Herschel the discoverer of Uranus and whoever. Maybe the ``Harp of George'' is in honor of maybe George III---actually it doesn't seem likely that a king would find honor in Paris in 1795---maybe it's George Washington's harp: I never knew he played.
