    Opening AA6 created FITS in Pixinsight - doesn't read

    hi, I created some FITS files when processing in AA6. A friend wanted to process in Pixinsight but reports that PI doesn't recognise the files - at least they open in PI but there's no apparent data. I tried this myself and can verify the issue.
    the FITS header details in attachedClick image for larger version.

    I think it's in 32-bit
    If I save as PNG-FITs and open in PI it is read ok....so not sure what's going on

    Hello, Google: pixinsight 32 bit fits
    If you want to change the file format, you may use 32 bit floating point, which is a more common format: in AA Menu Edit / Data format / Floating point. Then save again.
