If you are a keen stargazer it might be worth investing in a specialty astronomy camera to capture the night sky.

Normal cameras struggle with astronomy shots, and the NANO1 is built to make taking shots of the stars as easy as possible. There is an astronomy exposure preset to help you get the best photos possible, WiFi control and transfer for easy sharing to your smartphone, and an augmented reality map to help you recognize constellations.

The tiny camera comes with a 2.8mm f/2.8 lens and weighs less than 200 grams for great portability. It’s capable of capturing 4K video at 60 frames per second, and the presets mean even beginners will be able to get great quality images and video.

The team behind the camera also developed a range of accessories to boost functionality. There is a telescope adapter for those who don’t own one already, Canon and Nikon adapters, and a 3-12mm F1.4 M12 zoom lens for those who want even better performance.

You can buy the camera and the kit lens together, or add other accessories as you wish. The basic package costs $445, and prices increase from there.
