Trouble processing mosaic

I need a little help figuring this out.  I am shooting a 9 panel mosaic using Ha, Oiii and Sii.  I am shooting about 10 frames for each of the filters, so 3 times 10=30 frames per panel so, I should have about 270 total frames to put together.  This doesn't seem like a huge amount, but it is kicking my butt.

What I have done so far is process the frames for each filter per panel.  For panel 1 I have a single processed Ha, a single processed Oiii, and a single processed Sii.  I have these processed frames for each of the panel.  

My laptop has 32gb of ram.  I am shooting with an ASI 6200mm, so the file sizes are large.  I have ran into troubles with everything from not enough disk space to needing more ram to process this.  Whenever I have been able to get a processed mosaic, the backgrounds between the frames are very different and apparent.  


Help!  How do I process this and put it together with out buying a huge computer??

If the subs are really big, it may be that that will create a limit on resources, unfortunately not something that is easily fixed. Having a big internal SSD will help, otherwise you likely do need to downsize the mosaic (it usually asks that as well I believe, otherwise there is an option for that). Having the Ha, OIII and SII integrated is very good, I would then first create a panel from those together. Do you do that? Only when I have the final panels, I would then use those to create the mosaic and for that you need LNC and MBB as well.

Thank you so much for the assistance.  I will try the downsizing to see if I can get it that way.  I MAY need to buy a new computer.  I really like the idea of building these mosaics and hate having to deal with issues.
