OpenFlexure Simple Illumination

The most simple illumination for the OpenFlexure microscope is a single LED with a 150 ohm resistor soldered on one leg.

Soldering components directly together is somewhat messy, and the LED can become loose in the microscope.

This board is a simple way to solve this issue.

Note the LED on the final board should be white not red!
