This application allows the user to read and add items to the FITS file header.
This is the main page where you select the file you want to look at or update.
You can also type the name in the source file box.
To read the header click the GET INFO button. The program will read thru the file and display all the cards in the header.
For those of you that want to add information to the header of your image fits file select the file and then click the Add to Header button or on the MENU click FILE > EDIT. This will open a new screen as shown to the right.
If you want to duplicate some of the entries of the previous change you can click Get Last Entry button and that information will be populated into the fields. You then can make changes as necessary.
The fields on this for are self-explanatory. Just fill in the items that you want to the header.
The output file will always be different than the original . This is done so you do not lose the original in case there is a problem with writing the output file.
I have been testing the out put by loading it into Nebulosity ( or other program that reads FITS files) to insure that the file can still be read.
The COMMENT is a free field input that will be added. Here you can put notes about the image or what ever you like.
A history entry will automatically be made to the header stating who changed the data with what program and when.
Once you have entered all the data you want to add click the UPDATE button. This will cause the program to read all the records and write them to the output file adding the new data.
"Update Completed" will be displayed when the change has been made.
Click the DONE button when finished and you will be returned to the main screen.
To terminate the program click the EXIT button.
