I've got a new error message I'm getting when I run WBPP. I should also say that I've used WBPP and BPP many times before and have never gotten this message.
The message is:
*** Warning: Image Calibration failed
*** Warning: All calibrated light frame files have been removed or cannot be accessed.


I'm on the latest version of PI, on a Mac running Catalina. Files are stored on an external drive (as they always have been.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Alan

well, osx uses friendly names for external devices so unless he renamed it that is probably not the problem...

what are the contents of the folder that you pointed WBPP to? is there anything at all in there?

so i'd check if that file that it's trying to open is really OK - openable in PI otherwise, or openable in fv or some other fits viewer.

second, and i think it should be OK, but personally i would not use any spaces in filenames - can you change /Volumes/ASTR WIN to something like /Volumes/ASTR_WIN ?

Rob, you were right as usual. When I tried opening that file, PI gave me an error. I looked at all the files from that imaging run, and 3 or 4 of them had strange file sizes and wouldn't open. I deleted those files and it seems to be working normally now--processing as we speak. Thanks again!

I am getting the exact same issue today! I have checked each fit file (I use Blink to clean up bad files before I attempt to use WBPP) The files will all open in Blink.
