Add Observation - FITS File Read OK but says 70.3 deg from target
#1
Hi Greg,

I found that the Read FITS Header function under Add Observation is able to read some of my FITS files, and it is a nice time saver.

When I read the header of a subexposure of M13, it raised a couple of errors - none of which prevent me from using the "Add Observation" function, but still might be of interest.  The FITS file was created by SGP.

   

1)  No location specified in header            In the FITS header, there is a field SITENAME = 'Blueberry Hill' (which corresponds to my ST4 site name), and also SITEELEV, SITELAT and SITELONG
2)  WARNING: not of image type light!      In the FITS header, there is a field IMAGETYP = 'Light  '
3)  Single frame 70.3 degrees from target  *** Error? ***      M13 is right in the middle of the subimage.  
     FITS header values are OBJCTRA = '16 42 24.783'  and   OBJCTDEC = '+36 28 14.681'

The FITS file is 32MB so if you need to see that, let me know and I'll send a Google drive link.

Thanks,
Rowland
