What Can DWARF II Smart Telescope Do?Updated 2 months ago

The compact AI-powered digital telescope — DWARF II, makes it easy for consumers to enjoy astronomy and nature photography.

introduction to DWARF II

The DWARFLAB team unveiled the DWARF II Smart Telescope, the first portable smart telescope controlled by a mobile phone with features such as one-click GOTO, gigapixel panorama, and AI automatic tracking.

Wireless control via mobile phone

DWARF II has a one-piece pan-tilt, it contains two axes of height and orientation. Users can not only control DWARF II shooting and recording but also use the virtual joystick to control the orientation of DWARF II.

Small size and easy to carry

DWARF II only has a similar size to an American English dictionary, and its small size is due to its periscope structure, which means the optical path is folded so that DWARF II is very compact.

DWARF II doesn't need Polaris alignment! The StellarRoute algorithm can also perform adaptive path planning to achieve one-click GOTO. The user only needs to select the star to be photographed in the app, and the DWARF II will automatically align itself at the target.

Intelligent tracking

Animals in motion are very difficult to aim at. Target tracking for DWARF II is achieved through multiple deep-learning networks. Select the target object through the DWARFLAB App, start the intelligent tracking function, and dwarf II will automatically rotate to track the target.

Gigapixel panoramic shooting

DWARF II captures multiple images with 2-axis scanning and then uses algorithms to stitch them into a gigapixel panoramic photo. It can be zoomed infinitely in the app. You can not only appreciate the whole scenery but also enjoy the exploration of each detail.
