The only thing I can think of is as you have mentioned - steady movment. I'm thinking of making a plactic chain and a electric motor, as you can find in Lego / Technics. Don't know if its duable yet, but low weight and smooth action should do the job in theory.
Well a motor should do the trick I guess. Keep us updated how it went.
News on the slider: It is ready - 30cm shorter and much more massive to reduce the movement.
Also the new camera equipment arrived today.
Charging the battery right now. Some testing will be done tomorrow
