The other thing is operating voltage every thing seems to be 9-12-24V

In theory I have some background to put a Rube Goldberg thing together with a microcontroller chip for the timing that could probably run on 6 volts, but as long as I can get exposures out toward 3 or 4 seconds or more, I figure it's not worth the effort (and I'm a slothful retired guy ).
