The restored Leviathan of Parsonstown 72-inch telescope and its support structure as seen from the east-south-east, roughly the perspective from the castle's front entrance. The wall on this side is embellished with battlement-style dentitions and other architectural touches since it is in view of the castle; the other side is more austere and bluntly functional.
