    IR Remote suggestion
    It would be good to have a small IR receiver that plugs in directly to the Mecha. Would not need a lot of individual IR receivers but would be good if it had an integrated AUX input for shutter confirmation. It would enable a quicker setup when you don't need the extra distance, messing with cables, etc.

    The IR remote needs line of sight between emitter and reciver. When the receiver is moved and rotated, it can lose line of sight. So we include multiple receivers.

    We listen. We try harder.

      Maybe a short cable version. I want to avoid the phone, especially at night as the screen is a pain to use and the light from the screen affects the night photos.
      I will only be using it for 200-degree panos and will be standing next to the tripod so line of site will not be a problem.
      Would it be possible to get a copy of the IR receiver circuit with the socket for the shutter confirmation? I am happy to make up one myself.
