TinyMOS, the company responsible for the Tiny1 camera, wants to be to astronomy pictures what GoPro is to extreme sports -- and these beautiful photos indicate that it's on its way to succeeding.
Aside from its remarkable ability to take photos of celestial bodies, the Tiny1 is an elegant, user-friendly camera. It's crafted from a single piece of aluminum, giving it a smooth, polished look.
TinyMOS will market the Tiny1 to a niche group of consumers with a high interest in taking astronomy pictures: the approximately 2 million amateur astronomers in North America. After having met the demand from backyard star-gazers, TinyMOS will expand to others who may wish to take occasional astronomy pictures. If the recent lunar eclipse taught us anything, it's that smartphones don't take good pictures of the moon.
