Frame Parameters Header

There is one HDU of this type. It contains some averaged photometric information (seeing and sky brightness) in each filter. There is one entry for each filter. Usually NAXIS2 will always be 5, however if a frame was not taken in a specific filter, or if its quality was bad, then there will not be an entry for that filter.
