'quote' in FITS header causing issue with AAVSO

'quote' in FITS header causing issue with AAVSO

Postby Keith Shank » Thu Aug 11, 2022 8:58 pm

Hello!

I have recently started submitting spectra to the AAVSO and have been made aware of a problem in Demetra and how it formats two lines in the FITS header.

The lines as created are

[JD-OBS '2459780.6416' / JD start observation
JD-MID '2459780.6504' / JD mid observation

these lines have to be edited with FITS editor to remove the ' to

JD-OBS 2459780.6416 / JD start observation
JD-MID 2459780.6504 / JD mid observation

Is it possible to modify Demetra in the next release to change this line to simplify submission to AAVSO?

Thanks
Keith Shank

Hello

I removed the quotes for Julian days FITS header keywords.
This will be available in the next release.
