Are there any experts on FITS images out there?
I have a friend who is a whizz at programming and have coaxed him into developing software that can take a few FITS images and search for new objects.
In other words, automated nova/supernova detection.
He has had some success in reading a FITS image, despite the incomprehensible information about the data structure.
For some strange reason, we are getting the right hand 280 columns appearing at the left - despite reading the data sequentially from the start.
The image is 3326 x 2504 pixels.
Very stretched image below:
Any help would be much appreciated!
