Right Ascension, Declinations are tabulated in decimal degrees in the archive.
The column label DEC conforms to the archive convention.
Here again, any sensible human-readable form may be used instead,
if the ASCII data are read in with an s12.6 format in the *.fmt file.
The result is stored as decimal degrees (as a Real*4 number),
but displayed as degrees, minutes, and seconds.
