FITS Viewer / Plugin
« on: 16:54:22, 20 August, 2017 »
Hi,
Can anyone recommend a FITS viewer, or ideally a codec so that I can see fits files in Windows 10 thumbnails and/or FastStone?

Thanks

Have used this:
http://www.spacetelescope.org/projects/fits_liberator/
and just recently this:
http://www.msbsoftware.it/avis/
Neither of those show  thumbnails (or I do not know how).
Here's a larger list if you want to experiment:

I don't know of anything that does thumbnails in windows - several times over the last 10 years it has crossed my mind to write such a thing - but never got around to it.

I'd worry slightly about performance - we'd have to be reading very large files, re-sampling them AND automatically dealing with stretch issues.
