Could you be a little more specific?
Are you reading in a fits BinTable and want to read specific columns?
If that's the case you can directly read it in a Table and use the column name to index it.

You could even use fits.getdata with header=True to get the data and header. In which case you could check the header keywords if you want some specific metadata to verify it's TIME or not.

As far as I remember the default precision for Time is 3. If you change the precision I think FITS time format will allow greater precision.
