    Read the Astronomy Now magazine review of the DWARF II Deluxe Edition here

    DWARF II – the compact smart telescope controlled by your smartphone app. It’s an all-in-one telescope, computerised mount and sophisticated camera system.

    Please note: this is the DWARF II Deluxe Edition – it is the same telescope and camera system bundle as the DWARF II Classic Edition with the addition of additional filters and a second battery

    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.

    You receive over $200 in additional accessories with this Deluxe package:

    • 2 x DWARF II Batteries (The DWARF II includes one battery) –  $69

    This doubles your viewing and imaging time with your DWARF II

    • DWARF II Filter Holder –  $29

    Magnetic filter holder and attach two 1.25″ filters to your DWARF II

    • 2 x DWARF II ND (Neutral Density) Filters – $39 each

    For photographing the Sun or other bright objects

    • DWARF UHC (Ultra High Contrast) Filter – $39

    Reduces the effects of artificial lights and airglow when shooting deep-sky objects. This filter does not eliminate the effects of light pollution, but does help reduce them.

    Auto Star Tracking & Stacking for Astrophotography

    The DWARF II mount overcomes two problems every astrophotographer faces when trying to take long exposure images of the night sky.

    First of all, the telescope mount must know where it’s located and where it’s pointed. Once it knows where this, a telescope can then move to astro objects to photography them. The DWARF II works out where it is pointed by a process called “Plate Solving”. The telescope takes some images and looks for the patterns of the stars it’s seeing. Every part of the sky has a different arrangement of stars, like an astro fingerprint. This happens in the background and the user will be unaware it’s even going on.

    The second issue is that due to Earth’s rotation, stars and other astro objects move slowly in the sky. (In fact they rotate around a point in the sky called the South Celestial Pole.) If you point a normal camera at stars and try and take a long exposure of even 30 seconds you’ll notice they simply leave a smear as they move.  The DWARF II can automatically track astro objects as they move across the night sky to allow low exposures to capture faint objects.

    Astrophotography also normally requires an equatorial or EQ mount. DWARF II sits an Alt-Az or AZ mount and uses a field-rotation-correction algorithm to avoid the field rotation AZ mounts sometime encounter during long exposures. There’s also no need for to worry about polar alignment.

    Automatic registration after multiple exposures means the DWARF II stacks the multiple exposures into a bright and clear image.

    Astronomy. Nature. Or both – the choice is yours

    The DWARF II is a compact smart telescope with dual camera offering widefield or telephoto shots.

    The same DWARF II telescope which can capture the wonders of the night sky including nebulae, star clusters and galaxies can also photograph nature close up. Watch and record videos of birds and animals and even photograph Sunspots.

    Complete control via your phone or iPad/tablet

    Connect your smartphone/tablet with the DWARF II via Wi-Fi, then you can wirelessly control all the features of the DWARF II through the DWARFLAB App (available in Android & iOS) and take pictures/videos. At BINTEL, we’ve been impressed with the rapid changes and feature enhancements the DWARF Lab have made to the DWARF II firmware and app based on feedback and suggestions from early users and online reviewers. 

    For advanced users, DWARF Labs will provide API and developer documentation, so you can even write and run your own programs on the DWARF II.

    AI Powered Object Recognition and Tracking 

    Whether it’s a bird, a rugby player or “weather balloon”, DWARF II’s neural network processing unit (NPU) automatically recognizes and tracks the movement of your chosen subject. If the action slows down, you’re one click away from zooming-in for a closer look. The panoramic and telephoto lenses are always kept in sync and the DWARF app enables one-click switching between them.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How does DWARF II take deep space photos?

    It consists of the following three steps: Automatic calibration. Dwarf II will automatically shoot 3 images of the sky, and based on these 3 images, the current attitude, tilt, and orientation of the dwarf can be calculated. GOTO. DWARF II integrates the star atlas, confirming the star to be observed, and it can read the coordinates of the star and point it directly. Tracking. The trajectory of each star in the star atlas has been solved in dwarf, allowing the star can be automatically tracked.

    What are some examples of the deep-sky objects DWARF II can capture?

    Based on the parameters of the camera, DWARF II is suitable for the DSOs whose angular size is above 15 arc minutes and the apparent magnitude is below 9, such as Omega Centuri, NGC2264, NGC5128, NGC6960, NGC1499, M6, M7, M8, M16, M17, M20, M41, M42, M44, M45, M81, M101, IC4604. As long as the cumulative exposure time is long enough and the sky tracking is stable, the weak signals of the nebula can be accumulated, and a variety of nebulae can be photographed.

    Can the DWARF II support RAW Format shooting? 

    Yes, the DWARF II supports TIFF and RAW format.

    How to charge the Dwarf ?

    The Dwarf II does not come with any charging cables. However all you require is a USB-C cable to charge.
