Mode: "w" (read-write)
HDUs: Num  Name  Type
      1          Image
      2          Table

julia> f[1]
File: file.fits
HDU: 1
Type: Image
Datatype: Float64
Datasize: (800, 800)

# read an image from disk
julia> data = read(f[1]);  

# read just a subset of image
julia> data = read(f[1], :, 790:end);  

# Get info about binary table
julia> f[2]
File: file.fits

         col2        String  5A

# Read a column from the table:
 julia> data = read(f[2], "col1")

# Read the entire header into memory
julia> header = read_header(f[1]);

julia> header["NAXIS1"]  # get value by keyword
800

julia> header[4]  # get value by position
800

# Read single keys into memory

julia> read_key(f[1], "NAXIS1") # by keyword
