Flat error message
I thought I had the calibration frames figured out as I had no issues for some time, especially after I created a dedicated library of darks, flats and dark flats. I attempted to create some new flats and dark flats when I switched back to a LP filter from a quadband narrow band filter.
I often get the error message in the jpg below
It seems like I have met all the requirements listed in the screen shot but still get this error.
There must be a problem still, maybe have a look at the FITS header information for your flats to see if something is odd there (like offset 0 or things like that).
I ran into this error code when in calibration APP began working on the Flat's. It already completed making a Master Bias, Master Dark Flat, and Master Dark but then gives this error and stops before it complete's the Flats. I re-booted the PC and tried three times, then I eliminated some of the flat files multiple ways, then I used an entirely different set of flat files that I know worked before and are good but it made no difference, still error message the same. Here is a screen shot of the error message:
Thanks, John Williams
Mm, it seems to be an error while doing light frame calibration, not the flats. Do you have your lights loaded as well at the same time? Although I would then still expect a masterflat to be created. I may have to ask for a small set of your data to check it out.
