Damn you're up late! Appears Astro Club Kiev is off line atm!

Are we socketing the Sensor? The only SIL I know of is this from digikey. But, I don't see why we couldn't use one of these. Would need to cut it down and separate the halves so they were SIL headers. Not cheap though. I know the pitch, 1.78mm is fine but the socket depth is ~3.7mm. The sensor legs are 5mm long. Also the socket pins accept .015" to .025" leads. The Sensor leads are .46mm/.018". It is a tad small but will do. I think the digikey socket pin depth is the same.
