I am not sure but NAXIS1 (or NAXIS2)  seem a IRAF FITS header ... NAXIS
is a MIDAS one's  (NAXIS (1) or NAXIS(2).
The NAXIS1 where transformed to NAXIS(1) when I made a FITS --> BDF
in my reductios. So could be the same at the reverse ???
It seems to me that NAXIS1 can be transformed to NAXIS(1) in you newly
fits file ... but there are options in OUTDISK/FITS to keep the headers
there are.

Good luck,
