Have received it! Many thanks!

Actually, while you are at it:
The text of the tutorial is a bit funny at the point when dealing with
'table2.fits', it sounds actually a bit like a hidden joke, which is
why I almost was not expecting to find a table2.fits.
Here is the text of page 27 of pydatatut.pdf:

>>> print tab2
[('M51', 13.5, 2) ('NGC4151', 5.8, 5) ('Crab Nebula', 11.12, 3)]
>>> col3 = tab2.field('nobs')

But the key 'nobs' does not exist in table2.fits!

Honi soit qui mal y pense... ;)

Best regards,
Michael
