TinyMOS, the company behind the TINY1 astrophotography camera introduced in 2015, is back with a successor. The newly unveiled NANO1 is only one-third the size of the TINY1 and offers multiple improvements over the original model, including greater portability, increased resolution, and a dual-mount lens system.

The NANO1 is highly portable, weighing in at less than 100g/3.5oz with a size considerably smaller than the TINY1. Despite the size reduction, the NANO1 astronomy camera will offer triple the resolution of the original model, featuring a Sony BSI sensor capable of capturing 12MP still images and 4K Ultra HD videos. The size of the NANO1's sensor is unclear, but it's likely the same 1/3" format as original TINY1.

TinyMOS packed a dual-mount system into the NANO1, one capable of supporting both "very small" M12 lenses, as well as larger C-mount lenses. Users will be able to control the camera using an iPhone or Android smartphone running a companion app. The apps will also support downloading and sharing images.

Joining the NANO1 camera will be a product line of accessories designed to pack flat, according to TinyMOS, including a miniature Z-tripod mount. The new astrophotography camera model will be launching this fall with deliveries expected to start in April 2019. The NANO1's price hasn't been revealed, but interested buyers can sign up for future news about the model here.
