FITS Preview

By CloudMakers, s. r. o.

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


FITS Preview is a lightweight and fast viewer for images in FITS format (Flexible Image Transport System) introduced by NASA and HEASARC.

The viewer is based on CFITSIO library and supports all standard monochromatic and color FITS image formats. It shows both an image (zoomed and stretched automatically, but manual correction of black and white point is available), an image metadata and histogram. The viewer can flip, rotate, debayer image (automatically if offsets fields in header are set correctly) and export images to JPEG format.

What's New in Version 1.5

Status bar with information about image and current view is added (mouse pointer coordinates, pixel value under mouse pointer, current stretch, zoom and image size).

Overexposed pixels are marked.
