      Extract IDL astrometry structure from a ST Guide Star Survey FITS header


      This procedure extracts the astrometry information from a ST Guide
      Star Survey FITS header and places it in an IDL structure for
      subsequent use with GSSSxyad and GSSSadxy.

Calling Sequence

      GSSSExtast, hdr, astr, noparams


      h - the GSSS FITS header


      astr - Structure containing the GSSS Astrometry information
              .CTYPE = ['RA---GSS','DEC--GSS']
              .CRVAL = plate center Ra, Dec (from PLTRAH, PLTRAM etc.)
              .XLL,.YLL = offsets lower lefthand corner
              .AMDX, .AMDY = 12 transformation coefficients
              .XSZ,.YSZ = X and Y pixel size in microns
              .PLTSCL = plate scale in arc sec/mm
              .PPO3, .PPO6 - orientation coefficients


      Most users should use EXTAST rather than this procedure. EXTAST will
      call GSSSEXTAST if supplied with GSSS FITS header.
