Script to import HFR and Eccentricity in fits headers
As of today Ekos calculates HFR, Eccentricity, Mean background value and number of stars for each frame but these values are not saved in the fits header.
Having such information stored in the fits file itself is useful for frame selection, benchmarking and processing.
I wrote a simple python command line script that parses the .analyze log file, where these keywords are stored and save them to the matching fits file.
It is hosted on github: github.com/fenriques/astro_tools
Just download the fits_header_import.py file and launch it from a terminal window: python fits_header_import.py
Tested on Linux only, Win/Mac could have directory path issues.
As soon as Ekos will write these keywords directly into fits files, this script will be useless.
