Hello,

I am using mathematica 5.2 on Windows XP.

I am trying to import FITS format data into Mathematica.

When I enter:
Import["c:/cygwin/home/chris/WMAP/wmap_ilc_3yr_v2.fits", "FITS", \
ConversionOptions -> {"Verbose" -> True}];

I get the error messege:
Import::errstruct: Data structure error. Unsupported extension"

But the help file says mathematica can improt fits format. The data I am
trying to import is available at
http://lambda.gsfc.nasa.gov/product/map/dr2/ilc_map_get.cfm

Chris
