Re: TELESCOP-keyword.

I'd support the suggestion of Morten Krabbe Barfoed that the original
'TELESCOP' keyword is a bit inadequate for complex space missions. But
perhaps I can point out that his example is a bit ill-chosen precisely
because you DO need three different keywords in this case.  ROSAT has two
telescopes: the Wide Field Camera (WFC) [from the UK] and the X-ray
Telescope (XRT) from Germany, the latter with two detectors (PSPC and
HRI).  Thus to specify your observation completely you would need
something like:
