Update NIS elements and STORM module

Today, the NIS elements software on the NIKON A1R/STORM system has been updated to the newest version for the NIS suite (4.5) and the STORM module (4.1). In STORM,  Z stacking features, fiducial marker integration and sequential recordings on identical positions can be performed, potentially on regions in  live cells. In addtition, the 405 laser was re-aligned and set at a higher level in the startup script to allow better imaging in the UV region. Users should take care that this laser setting is different from their previous sessions.
