Data Retrieval and Organization

The first step in the CCD reduction is the storage of the data on disk. The MIDAS FITS reader INTAPE/FITS provides this functionality. The data probably will contain frames of different exposure type (biases, darks, flat fields, science frames, etc), and possibly obtained with different filters. After the INTAPE/FITS command these different frames are stored on disk.
