'Tiny1' is a camera from TinyMOS that boasts the ability to capture incredible views of stars in the sky.

The astrophotography tool promises to be as intuitive as a smartphone camera, as it uses a star overlay chart that's comparable to Google's Sky Map app. This makes it possible for people to spot and capture images of specific planets and stars in the night sky. The camera itself is made with an aluminum body and a lens that works with both automatic and manual settings. Following its crowdfunding campaign, the TinyMOS team plans to create adapter pieces that will allow experienced photographers to swap lenses.

With the rise of smartphone photography, cameras are now becoming more highly specialized in order to entice consumers to invest in dedicated camera devices.
