His son, John Frederick William Herschel was even more famous as a scientist.

Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel was a great astronomer and mathematician. He was the first to demonstrate the parallax of a star; John Herschel said it was “the greatest and most glorious triumph which practical astronomy has ever witnessed.”
