RIP Andrew Davies

Recommended Posts

I'm saddened to announce the unexpected death of Andrew Davies, astronomer, teacher and inspiration to many.
He helped many develop in our great hobby, through his teaching, the clubs he helped set up, through his work fronting the North West Astronomy Festival in Runcorn, and in setting up Astrofarm France. 
He will be much missed.

So sad to hear this. I got to know Andrew well during 3 trips to Astrofarm. His love and knowledge of astronomy always shone through. He even got me to take some DSO images and patiently went through the best way to process them with me. Something I never intended to do. Two of these images now hang on my study wall. Every time I look at them I will remember the kind, cheerful man who became my friend.

RIP Andrew and condolences to Sue and his family

Andrew had moved back to UK last year, but Sue is still running Astrofarm, with the "Astro-facilities" available to guests as before.

Yes I was aware of this. Unfortunately I missed my annual trip to Astrofarm this year due to family illness.
