Johh my problem is sorted out now, thank you. The first download was corrupt which was the reason behind my problem. I think last night's heavy download traffic is the culprit.

Hi Sedat,

I am glad to know 1.8.6 is finally working for you.

That error message denotes a problem with the SSL certificate installed on the www.skypixels.at website. This does not mean that the certificate is incorrect necessarily, just that there are some discrepancies such as mismatched server names or certificate subjects. That's why one should always use EV (Extended Validation) certificates for websites.

You can disable secure connections for this repository, that is, specify http:// instead of https://, and it should work. Insecure connections are not advisable these days but in this way you'll be able to download updates from this website.

Thank you Juan! Another excellent response. I'm all set now. Cheers!

Good Job Juan,
Happy to see the new licensing system and the nice news.

Only one question: where can I find the new SubframeSelector tool? the one under Script-Batch processing seems to be the old one.

It is under the Process menu.

Great! Let me know if it works this time.

Yes, perfectly worked... but now having difficulty with Hartmut Bornemann repository... https://www.skypixels.at/HVB_Repository/

I'm getting this message:

"https://www.skypixels.at/HVB_Repository/: Network error: schannel: CertGetNameString() failed to match connection hostname (www.skypixels.at) against server certificate names"

Is this a PI problem or does the repository need an update to be compatible with 1.8.6?

I'm unable to install it. I double click the PI-windows-x64-01.08.06.1447-20181215-c.exe file. In 1-2 seconds, a pop-up window appears and disappears in the blink of an eye. It is impossible to read the message.... Well, I filmed this process and when I checked it frame by frame I was able to grab the pop-up window. It reads " Preparing..." but then nothing happens!


FYI, I have uninstalled the 1.8.5 version and this is a Win 7 machine which never had any problems with the installation of the previous versions.

That makes sense... mine is a much shorter file.... thank you so much! Going to re download immediately.


I have had the same difficulty, downloaded file was not at the good length (too short), you must re-download the file. the good size is 285 495 ko. I install the new file, but now, I never receive the activation code, I wait for more an hour.

For the life of me, I can't get GMM to like the registered  images  :embarassed:

The 2 images I feed GMM are exactly the same size but I'm still getting "Current image width differs from first image width." error.

I have used the MBC method as well but that didn't help either. I'm sure this is a pilot error but I cannot detect it :(

Would any of you please give it a try and let me know how to do this successfully. I have placed the files here --> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/na0prm151e4hanz/AAADMu__7uvJHWW0DcOcwqzRa?dl=0

This is a 12 pane mosaic but I'm working on the first two for learning purposes.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Sedat

I found this explanation on Cloudy Nights, which seems to be taken from PI forums :) http://www.cloudynights.com/topic/492626-pixinsight-updates-broken-bpp-integration/?p=6467668

"Here is an explanation for the CFA error I found on the PI forums:
 
This caused by yourself (or BPP) having set the input hint to 'raw cfa' (which is correct for DSLR).
When the input is in a raw format, PI can find out that it is indeed in CFA format, so it is happy.
When the input is in FITS format, the 'raw' part is ignored (but does not hurt), the 'cfa' part is obeyd (and must be present for some process and do not hurt for others), but PI cannot check that the file was indeed in 'cfa' mode. This information is not in a FITS header.  So it tell you: OK, you tell me it is CFA, I believe you, but I cannot check."

I understand this not something I should worry about ?

I'm receiving the same message :( The calibrated files look good though...

Has anybody have an answer for this ?

Vicent, this workshop was revolutionary in several ways. We learned so much in such a short time.

I recommend this workshop to every astro imager. It was the  best investment I made in recent years. Instead of upgrading your equipment continuously, upgrade yourself :) You will be surprised to see the difference it makes in your final images.
