Prototyping an arduino based macro focus stacking contoller.
Stackduino is an Arduino based controller for automating focus stacking.
A stepper motor moves the camera/ subject between pictures and the controller sends a shutter signal to the camera to take each picture. For safety, the camera is electrically separated from the controller using opto-isolators.
