Makee: FITS Header Cards

The FITS header of the output spectrum files contain all the header cards of the original raw FITS images plus many new FITS header cards giving information on the reduction parameters and results. Also, the cards (OBSERVER and OBJECT) may be modified on request.

The following is a list of new makee header cards added (with example values
and brief descriptions.):
