Thank you for the link, but I'm still a little confused.
I'm new to using Indi, and I'm using the PyIndi wrapper, so I'm not quite sure how to use the CCD::processBLOB. The code I started with is from the example here: www.indilib.org/develop/indi-python-bindings.html .

The relevant part at the end, where I receive the blob's data:

for blob in ccd_ccd1:
print("name: ", blob.name," size: ", blob.size," format: ", blob.format)
fits=blob.getblobdata()
print("fits data type: ", type(fits))
# here you may use astropy.io.fits to access the fits data
i+=1

The format of "blob" returns a bytearray object, and the size is 12104640.
Using astropy.io.fits I can create the fits file but the data is 1D. Can I make a call to CCD::processBLOB somehow to convert this into a 2D byte array that FITS viewers like?

Thank you again for the help.
