switched to stranded

Don't know what I was thinking but when I built my custom mirror cable adapter, I used solid copper wire to connect to the Enable toggle switch and the submini jack port. These rigid wires did not respond well to the flexing, pushing, and pulling encountered in a typical imaging run. Two wires pulled out of their soldered joints. Gah.

Tonight I rewired with stranded leads.

Missed having it last weekend. I think the mirror vibration was affecting some of my high-speed double star shots.

Tested it. It is working. I think.

BYE seems very sluggish after the imaging run...
