Example

import fits "github.com/astrogo/fitsio"

func dumpFitsTable(fname string) {
    r, err := os.Open(fname)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    defer r.Close()
	f, err := fits.Open(r)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}
	defer f.Close()

	// get the second HDU
	table := f.HDU(1).(*fits.Table)
	nrows := table.NumRows()
    rows, err := table.Read(0, nrows)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    defer rows.Close()
	for rows.Next() {
        var x, y float64
        var id int64
        err = rows.Scan(&id, &x, &y)
        if err != nil {
            panic(err)
        }
        fmt.Printf(">>> %v %v %v\n", id, x, y)
	}
    err = rows.Err()
    if err != nil { panic(err) }
    
    // using a struct
    xx := struct{
        Id int     `fits:"ID"`
        X  float64 `fits:"x"`
