Introducing DWARF II
From one of the world’s leading pioneers of cutting-edge products that break limits, we bring you the latest innovation. DWARF II - the Portable and Versatile Smart telescope that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Are you an amateur astronomer, bird watcher, wildlife photographer, or just a photography enthusiast that needs to capture things you can’t get close enough to like a ball game? Well, DWARF II is exactly what you need.
Unlike traditional telescopes that are bulky and costly, DWARF II allows you to explore your interests without hassle, DWARF II lets you enjoy incredible detail in a super-small size.
If you have any question, feel free to book a webchat with us using the Calendly.
Shoot on DWARF II
"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."
-- Immanuel Kant, Critique of Practical Reason
Telescope Is Intelligent Like Never Before
Control with your mobile devices
Connect your smartphone/tablet and DWARF II via WiFi, then you can easily control DWARF II through DWARF App and take pictures/videos. DWARF App is compatible with Android and iOS devices.
We will provide API and developer documentation. You can even run your own programs on DWARF II.

Auto Star Tracking and Stacking
Due to Earth’s rotation, the stars move slowly in the sky. DWARF II can automatically track the stars. DWARF II can rotate around the altitude and azimuth along the movement of stars. DWARF II uses a field-rotation-correction algorithm to avoid the field rotation. Then you can use DWARF II to track deep-sky objects with long exposure time.
Automatic registration after multiple exposures, DWARF II stacks the images into a bright and clear image. It helps you to record deep-sky objects easily.
Gigapixel Panorama Zoom the World
Have you ever tried taking a picture with ONE BILLION pixels?
DWARF II can capture multiple images through 2-axis scanning, then stitch them into ONE picture. The pixel count can even reach ONE BILLION!
Try it for yourself!
AI-Powered Object Recognition and Tracking
The maximum angular velocity tracked by DWARF II is 36 °/s, and the maximum linear velocity that can be tracked at a distance of 150 m is 90 m/s, which is 324 km/h. Birds and airplanes can be tracked.
Select the target object through framing it, then use the Object Tracking function in DWARF App to track it. The object tracking of DWARF II is realized through multiple deep learning networks, including SiamMask (CVPR 2019), SiamRPN++ (CVPR 2019 oral), DaSiamRPN (ECCV 2018), SiamRPN (CVPR 2018), and SiamFC (ECCV 2016). The networks are accelerated by the NPU (Neural-Network Processing Unit) in DWARF II.
Small yet Powerful
DWARF II is a periscopic telescope. We use a prism to fold the light path. DWARF II can rotate in altitude and azimuth. The altitude axis passes through the centroid of the optical tube (including prism, lens, sensor, etc.). This structure can significantly reduce the moment of inertia around the altitude axis. Furthermore, the optical tube will not “rise up” when you raise up the altitude angle. As a result, the centroid of DWARF II is low. So that the vibration can be reduced, especially when there is wind. Through this design, we can ensure DWARF II has good stability and a small size, allowing that you can use it outdoor to take fantastic images instead of shaky ones.
I believe you’ve never seen a telescope that looks like this. You'll love this design.
DWARF II has two cameras, a wide-angle camera, and a telephoto camera. Through the wide-angle camera, you can take pictures/videos as a normal camera, or preview the field of view. Aim the target in the middle of the wide-angle view, then the telephoto camera is aiming your target. And the telephoto image is always at a fixed place (near the center ) of the wide-angle image.
