We study the Tikhonov regularization for ill-posed non-linear operator equations in Hilbert scales. Our focus is on the interplay between the smoothness-promoting properties of the penalty and the smoothness inherent in the solution. The objective is to study the situation when the unknown solution fails to have a finite penalty value, hence when the penalty is oversmoothing. By now this case was only studied for linear operator equations in Hilbert scales. We extend those results to certain
