AXVAL
Type: Adverb    (array(2))
Use:  To specify the value of the coordinate at the reference
      pixel on a specified axis.  FITS standard units are mks
      with degrees and Jy added.  AXVAL is an array to allow
      greater precision in the specified value.  The axis
      value is taken to be AXVAL(1) + AXVAL(2) with both
      values converted to double precision before adding.  For
      example, the frequency 1.420405752E6 is too precise for
      a single adverb.  However, AXVAL = 1.4204E6, 5752. will
      convey the desired value correctly.  NOTE, if AXVAL(1)
      = AXVAL(2), then the axis value is taken to be just
      AXVAL(1).
Null value: none
Verbs:
  AXDEFINE...Define new axis or alter previous axis description.
             AXVAL must be specified.
  ALTDEF.....Define an alternate description in velocity units
             of a frequency axis.  AXVAL is the reference pixel
             velocity in meters/sec.
