julian weßel - astrophotography

the photographer

My name is Julian Weßel, astrophotographer living in Gladbeck, Germany.

At the age of 18 I purchased my first Newtonian telescope and the views through it made me feel addicted to astronomy and it became a big part of my life.

After that I decided to share this experience and started capturing what I saw with my DSLR. Obviously it worked out and every day there are new astro enthusiastic people who share this excitement with me.

And I hope you will follow on my journey, too!
