    Default Readers for Astrometry.net's fits files



    I’ve just learned about software that can open those inscrutable fits files that Astrometry.net generates, such as axy.fits. Turns out they include tables, and the freeware fv can read ‘em. And do a lot more too. Apparently SExtractor can as well.
