FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) is a data format most used in astronomy. PyFITS is a Python module for reading, writing, and manipulating FITS files. The module uses Python's object-oriented features to provide quick, easy, and efficient access to FITS files. The use of Python's array syntax enables immediate access to any FITS extension, header cards, or data items.

PyFITS release notes

   PyFITS is being used within the STScI operations pipelines and is a
   supported product. Currently PyFITS takes a fairly strict
   interpretation of FITS files. There are likely to be problems with FITS
   data that do not strictly conform to the standard. Undoubtedly, use
   with a wider variety of files and uses will uncover problems; please
   contact [2]
