Hi, I'm just thinking, it seems that numpy arrays and the data arrays created from opening a fits image seem to be back to front...i.e.., hdulist[0].data[0,Y1:Y2,X1:X2]. Where as a numpy array is loaded x and then y...? It does make things a little awkward when data processing (e.g., selecting the wrong area of the image than intended). Just a thought!
