Any body have an easy way of flicking one off. I have heard that a laser pointer set on it will trip them off. I could have it disconnected but I do need it when not observing. I have given some thought to wiring a switch on it but dont like working on anything that is hot. This light is the only light source that interferes with my sky watching. I have thought about takeing a 5 gallon bucket, mounting a stick on it and hanging it off of the security light. At least all of the light would be directly down during the observing.

Any thoughts?
