What are the various extensions in the FITS files?

    The first extension is the "best" aperture that produces the lowest rms. The next 20 extensions are light curves using 10 different circular apertures and 10 different PRF-based apertures (including whichever one was identified as the "best" aperture). The next two extensions define the 10 circular and the 10 PRF-based apertures, and the final extension is the summed image of all postage stamp frames.
