At the time E. E. Barnard worked at the Lick Observatory the 36 inch refractor was the biggest telescope of the world. Unfortunately due to the bad relationship between Barnard and the director of the Observatory, Barnard didn’t have a lot of opportunities to use this huge telescope. On one of the rare occasions he was able to observe with this telescope he discovered the fifth moon of Jupiter.
