[AstroBetter](http://www.astrobetter.com/) has an article on on a [FITS QuickLook plugin](http://www.astrobetter.com/apps/qlfits-the-quick-look-generator-for-fits-files/) for Mac OS X by the author of the plugin. Looks incredibly useful if you use a Mac and FITS files. QuickLook plugins for more scientific data file formats would be really nice. Any one have an HDF 5 plugin?

I'm a software developer focusing on high-performance computing and visualization in scientific programming. I work mostly in IDL, but occasionally use C, CUDA, and Python.
I currently work for the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) at the Mauna Loa Solar Observatory. Previously, I worked for Tech-X Corporation, where I was the main developer for GPULib, a library of IDL bindings for GPU accelerated computation routines.
