A tease................................Wink

I have had to order some stuff to get my rail project going, but one of the items is an old CD/DVD drive, removed all the PCB's and mechanical bits of it to leave just the laser carriage. This shot is the tiny gear drive from the motor to the carriage, taken with the mobile macro lens.

I think I've found the site/idea that you're using. I might even have a go myself despite being mechanically challenged.

On further investigation it appears this only works with inferior Canon models so I guess I'll have to wait Sad

I thought that Graham, but the output from the optocoupler will work on the Nikon as well, just need to hack a remote release so you can plug it in using the 10 pin plug and find which wires to use and wire up to the outputs on the opto. Nearly finished mine so I will let you know.
