Meet Tiny1


The world’s first astrophotography camera made to be 

small, smart and sociable

Captured with Tiny1 Prototype

TinyMOS Story
TinyMOS began in 2014. I was a professional photographer and on a stargazing trip. I saw a sky full of stars – the Milky Way stretched horizon to horizon. Armed with a Nikon D4 DSLR and years of photography knowledge, I could not capture the sights before me.
We built the Tiny1 so that now, you can.
Tiny1 is the world’s smallest, smartest and most social astronomy camera. It helps you plan, capture and share your star filled sky experience – all from the palm of your hands. Here’s a gallery of what we have captured, over 2 years of development.
Back us, to put the wonders of the night sky and exploration in the hands of everyone.

How we made the Tiny1 tiny and powerful



Back Illuminated Sensor

Two times better than front illuminated sensors at converting light to signal. Higher fidelity images at the pixel level.


Advance Noise Reduction

Patent pending built-in noise reduction algorithm that self calibrates and reduces noise effectively.

Aluminium Mono Body

Made of aircraft grade aluminium; the strong and durable body also acts as a heat sink to reduce thermal noise.
