He was one of the most respected astronomers of his time and a national treasure.
And now fans of Sir Patrick Moore can buy a piece of his legacy.
On October 7 and 8, Henry Adams Auctions in Chichester is offering for sale the contents of Farthings, the Selsey home of Sir Patrick.
There are around 150 lots with a number of personal items including Sir Patrick’s magnifying glasses, typewriter, office chair and orreries.
Buyers can even purchase one of his eclectic Hawaiian shirts.
Auctioneer and valuer Andrew Swain said: ‘Sir Patrick was very well travelled and everywhere he went, he collected shot glasses – we have over 100 on sale.’
Also up for sale are a number of books signed by leading scientists including astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle and Carl Sagan.
