FIPS — OpenGL based FITS image viewer
FIPS is a cross-platform FITS viewer with responsive user interface. Unlike other FITS viewers FIPS uses GPU hardware via OpenGL to provide usual functionality such as zooming, panning and level adjustments. OpenGL 2.1 and later is supported.
FIPS supports all 2D image formats (except for floating point formats on OpenGL 2.1). FITS image extension has basic limited support.
