I also get the same error with the generated master flat if I use a master bias.

Also I would want to know which normalization is being done for the flat frame integration.

May be of interest to the BPP script users here, I just posted a bit of a tutorial on how to create a BPP template that remembers things like your master bias and dark files, and CC settings etc.

Hi Vicent,

What version of PI and the FITS module are you running? Have you applied all the updates available? This looks like an old bug that I fixed some time ago.

Multiplicative normalization for output. Flux equalization normalization for rejection.

Hi,

PI is completely updated in my computer... At least that's what it says...

My FITS SO file is from April 2012. How can I see the version??


Thx,
V.

Your installation is up-to-date. To understand what happens, I need a sample of these files. Could you upload them to Endor?

Version 1.21 has been released as an update. The source code is attached to this post, as usual.

Main changes:

- Fixed a regression where the registration reference image was being assigned to the output directory.

- Engine changes to make use of read-only output data from ImageCalibration (output file paths).

- New dark frame exposure time tolerance feature.

- Additional error checks to make the process more robust to lack of access to working files during the calibration and registration phases.

- Fixed a potential problem with weird filter names used as directory names.

- Additional diagnostics messages to warn on invalid file name characters in filter names.

- GUI fix: Push buttons no longer will have icons on Mac OS X. This is to fix some extremely ugly interface problems we've seen recently. Note that this will change once we release PI version 1.8.0.

- Added a warning message box to say that the light frames integration feature is not intended to produce a final (that is, optimal) result.

Enjoy!

The GUI is still not the best.  Refer attached screenshot.

Not sure if I'm going crazy, but I'm sure that with previous versions of BPP, if I save a process icon with master darks and biases chosen, the next time I open that process icon they are already there for reuse.  This version the process icons no longer remember the files selected at time of saving.  It does remember settings like the CC process icon, and the master bias/dark boxes are ticked etc.

What the?  I'm on a MacBook Pro running Lion 64bit.  Where do you reckon that difference is?

I have no idea. What happens if you resize the script's dialog? It can be resized arbitrarily in the usual way (bottom right corner). In your screenshot it looks like the dialog's size is too small, which is really weird.

Starting from version 1.8, PixInsight will no longer be a "Mac application". Its custom style will look exactly the same on all supported platforms, pixel by pixel. The 1.8 application will not depend on Mac OS X or Windows to render a single pixel of its GUI. This should fix all of these issues once and for all.

If I resize the window, as soon as I start dragging it the bottom kind of snaps down so that the LinearFit High line can now be seen.  But the text on some of the buttons is still chopped off, as is the ImageIntegration drop down boxes etc.

Note that this behaviour isn't unique to BPP.  I've noticed it on some other scripts as well.  Some parts are chopped off or only half readable, resize and the window snaps so they are usually visible.  I don't recall it happening in modules, just scripts I think.

Looking forward to PI 1.8  :D

Troy,
did you modify the default fonts used in the GUI, or are you using some utility that is supposed to enhance the Mac GUI? Just a wild guess...
