I already clean the code and followed the gnuastro convention.
Also add the option to save the output in a file:
   -I get an error when I save to a file it fits and I use asttable.
   -It saves all the output not only the table.

Now I am going to work on add the photometric bands to the code.

I made the first commit to this task:

I'm making the query with the apis that sdss already has (http://skyserver.sdss.org/dr16/en/help/docs/api.aspx)
I have to improve the input arguments and add other features like the band filters or the coordtype.

The latest SDSS database on VizieR is the 12th SDSS data release. However, on its own webpage we also have Data release 16.

As far as I know, SDSS doesn't have provide TAP access (I may be mistaking, but I couldn't find it in a simple search). So we have to use a custom command for querying this database.
