If you look hard enough you should also be able to find a design that they are considering for use on MARS. It is a capacitive 
sensor I think with an X/Y motion mass suspended by a series of leaf springs. It looks like it would be great for amateurs if only 
could get our hands on such a thing. They are putting considerable time and effort or so it seems into making a light weight 
seismometer that would be very portable.
I can not remember where I saw the design but they had a photo of the guts to the thing.
I have always thought it would be nice to have a seismometer you could easily move from one place to another.
