Hi,I have 7 images I want to color convert and stack using DL6.11.��This is my first time using a DSLR for night sky imaging. (I was travelling overseas).��I made master calibration frames using 6 ea darks, bias and flats. Then Calibrated All. I saved after calibration. Then doing color convert the max number I could convert is 5 of the 6. I have tried 4 times. Usually stops working at 3rd or 4th image. My process is convert one, then use same settings on the next, then next.

Sony Nex7, -- writes 24MB ARW files which I rename to SRF files so I can open them. No Sony camera is listed in the Color Convert pull down menu. Using generic RGBUsing Windows 10 on Samsung ultrabook. With 7 images open, total memory useage is 3.1GB of my 4.4GB RAM.



Does my process above seem correct? Any ideas about crashing?��

Thanks,�� �� Roger

Have you tried the automated process from the Process -> Stackmenu item?



This will save a lot of manual work and is more memory efficient.

I tried to use auto process it to load files and calibrate. Nothing loaded. I think because I had not yet learned I had to change the file extension per below. I thought it was because the FITS header was limited info. I just put camera on self timer and imaged and took calibration frames. Then manually made groups.�� But now I realize none would load because of file extension. I will try you suggestion today. Thanks!But any ideas out there on why DL would crash with what I did??

Thanks,
