Adding lat and long to FITS file

I just uploaded my first CMOS photometry to AAVSO and an upload error error flag pointed out that Airmass was missing.

I have entered latitude and longitude to my ASIair imaging controller settings but it doesn't seem to output airmass or even lat and long to FITS file.

I will be very tedious but can I do it.

Lat/Long and Airmass

In VPhot you can record your observatory latitude and longitude in your Telescope Profile.

The TransformApplier routine will use this information to add the airmass values to your output AEFF record.

So its not necessary to add lat and long to the fits header of each image.
