Introducing DWARF II - the compact smart telescope controlled by your smartphone app.

Are you an amateur astronomer, bird watcher, wildlife photographer, or just a photography enthusiast that wants to capture things you can’t get close enough to, like a ball game or a galaxy? Well, DWARF II is exactly what you need.

The Classic edition includes a DWARF II, a carrying bag, a tripod, a replaceable battery and a 64GB microSD card.

The Deluxe edition includes all items that  are included in the Classic edition, plus one extra battery, one UHC filter, two ND (solar) filters and a filter adapter.


Dwarf II Features
Versatile to Take Shots of DSO, Birds and Animals
DWARF II is a compact smart telescope with dual camera and AI power. You can take shots of deep sky objects, Galaxy and Nebula. Watch and record videos of birds and animals.


Easy to Control with Your Mobile Device
Connect your smartphone/tablet with DWARF II via WiFi, then you can wirelessly control DWARF II through DWARFLAB App (available in Android & iOS) and take pictures/videos. We will provide API and developer documentation, so you can even run your own programs on DWARF II.

Dual Camera System
DWARF II has two cameras, a wide-angle camera, and a telephoto camera. Through the wide-angle camera, you can take pictures/videos as a normal camera, or preview the field of view. Find the target in the middle of the wide-angle view, then the telephoto camera is aiming your target. And the telephoto image is always at a fixed place (near the center ) of the wide-angle image. 

Auto Star Tracking & Stacking for Astrophotography
Due to Earth’s rotation, the stars move slowly in the sky. DWARF II can automatically track the stars. It can rotate around the altitude and azimuth along the movement of stars. DWARF II uses a field-rotation-correction algorithm to avoid the field rotation. Then you can use DWARF II to track deep-sky objects with long exposure time. Automatic registration after multiple exposures, DWARF II stacks the images into a bright and clear image. It helps you to record deep-sky objects easily.
AI Powered Object Recognition and Tracking
Whether it's a bird or a ball player, 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. Our panoramic and telephoto lenses are always kept in sync and our app enables one-click switching between them. 
Compact, Portable, Powerful
Weighing in at 1.2 kg (2.6 lbs) you can take DWARF II anywhere, in its custom-padded bag or in a backpack.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of telescope is the DWARF II? Why is it different from the telescopes I've see?

The shape of the DWARF II is special. Because we use a periscope structure to lower the center of its gravity and enhance its stability. This structure makes DWARF II look different from other telescopes.

How does the 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 II 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 II, allowing the star to be automatically tracked.

What kind of deep space photos can the DWARF II shoot?

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 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. 

Does the DWARF II support RAW format shooting?

Yes, the DWARF II supports TIFF RAW fomat.

Much better than its size and cost suggest
13 December 2023  | 

Had the dwarf 2 deluxe kit for a couple of months now. Was really surprised how quickly the stacks built up to give an image of lots of dso’s. No use for planets, but that was understood before buying as the focal length is much too small. Leave it tracking on a target for a few 100 shots and the results are incredible. You have access to the individual fits files if you want to stack and process on Mac or pc, but the dwarf does a pretty good job with the levels being edited in Snapseed or similar on my phone. Thoroughly recommend this great little device.

Zygo Interferometer Testing For ED Refractor Telescopes!

We are extremely pleased to announce our Zygo Interferometer is now installed and ready for use! Our experienced staff can test refractor lenses up to 120mm aperture and provide a comprehensive 2 page report showing the optical quality and Strehl ratio, plus much more information. We are using the very latest Zygo MX software to provide a more detailed report compared to other standard reports.


The interferometer is essentially a measuring instrument. Within the interferometer is a calibrated laser that is pointed through the optical test surface, then onto a high quality reference sphere, then back through the test subject then to an internal camera which gives us the measurement on the screen. From this, we can adjust the position of the test optic and the reference sphere to obtain a perfectly calibrated system. The more central the laser to the test optic and then on return, the better and more accurate reading and measurement we can take. This takes a lot of adjustment to get the best results from the optical surface. Once the measurement has been taken, we are provided with a series of results that show the optical quality of the surface plus other information. Continue reading for an explanation of the individual values and you can also see a test report that was done on one of our RVO Horizon 60 OTAs. 

We are offering certain telescopes with a Zygo test at an extra cost. Mainly ED doublets and triplets. All available telescopes with a Zygo test report are listed here. Just select Zygo Test Report from the drop down box at the top of the listing and we will test the optics in house and provide a full 2 page report with your scope. This will show you the optical quality of your telescope optics. We can also offer this service on your refractor telescope. Please get in touch for more details about this. 

At Rother Valley Optics, one thing we pride ourselves on is customer service and quality of our equipment. When we test your telescope, we will ensure that it is of the highest quality otherwise, we will reject the scope under our strict quality control and test another model for your peace of mind. One of the main values to look at when testing a refractor is the Strehl ratio. The higher this number, the higher quality lens you have. At Rother Valley Optics, we will guarantee the highest possible Strehl ratio for your telescope.  We will aim to provide 0.95 Strehl or higher on Takahashi, RVO Horizon, William Optics and many more! Generally, the higher the Strehl ratio, the lower the Astigmatism and Coma meaning a better image quality from your instrument. 

Other measurements such as the PV and RMS are important too. With these measurements, the lower the number the better as it shows less curvature on the lens. The flatter an optical lens, the better it will perform. The PV rating (Peak To Valley) is a measurement from the highest point (Peak) to the lowest point (Valley). From this we get the RMS (Root, Mean, Square). This is a similar figure to the PV and measured exactly the same way. The RMS is basically an average height difference from the PV so again, the lower the better. As you can see form the example below, we measured an RMS of just 0.027 wave which is a very good value.

We also measure the Power with our systems which is essentially the error from the reference sphere to the test optic. The reference sphere we use on our system is a very high quality sphere so the closer to zero the Power, the less error between the 2 elements thus ensuring a higher quality optical surface. 

You will also see some more values such as Astigmatism and Coma. Again, these are measured by the interferometer when we take measurements of the optical surface after adjustment. These are values which ideally would be at 0 but as our test optics are all curved lenses, there will always be astigmatism and coma present. The lower the number, the less of these aberations you will effectively see but with most refractors, you can buy field flatteners which will compensate for the coma anyway. The astigmatisms value is explaining the error between the symmetrical curvature of the lens. Basically, no lens will be perfectly symmetrical, the lower the astigmatism, the more symmetrical the lens surface is. 

Once the Zygo test report has been completed, the optical alignment is thoroughly tested and tuned to ensure they are spot on before they leave us. 

All available telescopes are on the website at the link below and ones we've tested already that are available straight away are also listed.

Here is an example of the test what we provide. This was a test on one of our Horizon 60 ED OTA's.
