Encountered error in module: CreateMasterFlatTask, Cause: null
I'm getting the attached error popup when trying to process the images and reference images. The "Cause: null" doesn't give me much to go on as far as whether I'm doing something wrong, or something is broken. I don't know where to find the log so I'll attach the contents of the console window. Version 1.082. MacOS 11.6 (I need to update that).
Update: I have 12 flat images, I've tried running only the first 6 and only the last 6, same result.
Hmm, it's not the flats. I tried again without the flats and get this.
@eebclee Without seeing the data it is hard to tell what the cause may be. Do you get the error too if you only integrate the lights without any calibration files?
@wvreeven this is happening at "2) CALIBRATE" well before integration -- if I remove everything except the lights, the step does not crash. I suspect because it has no calibration to do without reference images?
Update: with only lights and darks it works. I'll try adding the other refs back one at a time and see where it goes wrong.
@eebclee Once you find which type causes the problems then you may want to try and find out if all of the files cause the issue or only some. We can help you find out if you want.
@wvreeven it's the bias frames. If I leave those out it's fine. Since everything is the same exposure they shouldn't really be needed. When I'm done I'll go back and see if I can find which one is causing the problem.
@eebclee Great detective work, Brian! Indeed, bias are not needed if the darks have the same exposure time, gain, offset and temperature as the lights and the dark flats the same as the flats.
