General / Problems saving drizzled images.
« on: 2014 November 14 02:43:43 »

I am having some problems recently with saving images.
I have aligned the calibrated fits with drizzle data, then used image integration and drizzle integration as described on this forum to create a drizzle image. That image is generated without issues, and it looks good in STF. However, when I try to save it, I get the following error:

PCL Exception: PCL FITS Format Support: FITS file write error:
CFITSIO error message stack:
01 : Numerical overflow during type conversion while writing FITS data.
<* failed *>

This happens both under Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14, in Pixinsight 1.8.0 and 1.8.02 and 1.8.03. Also tried saving all fits formats: 32 bits, 8 bits, 64 bits, signed & unsigned etc, same result. Any suggestions?
I will also mention that calibration was done under Maxim not Pixinsight, however this shouldn't matter. I have tried stacking the same images without drizzle, and the result was saved successfully.

I appreciate any help with this, thank you

Summer isn't the best season to shoot the Moon, but you made a good job.

Could it be related to spikes introduced by the micro lenses of the sensor?
At least the Kodak 8300 is known to produce similar looking star shapes.

But this doesn't explain why you get round stars in other programs.
