FITS Header Issue

In some cases SkyView has been including newline characters in FITS headers. This is a violation of the FITS standards and apparently confuses some tools about subsequent header records. We’ve put in a fix for the problem this morning (10/25) so this should be resolved. It looks like it mostly affected surveys where we had put in links to other other surveys (e.g., the ROSAT PSPC surveys).

Thanks to Todd Hunter for bringing this to our attention. If you see any problems with the system you can use our E-mail (skyview at skyview.gsfc.nasa.gov) to let us know about it.
