I get the same error whenever I try to process my latest batches of images. The first step is always to stack the sets of colors, and that is not possible at this time.

Cannot stack images

Hi Mike,

I guess it is always strange to come across an error in a procedure that you have done over and over again for such a long time.  I am not familiar with many of the procedures but I have recently been working on several years of standard field images and found it to be much less tedious if I stack groups of near equal airmass images by color.  I had thought that there is not much that could go wrong in this process unless you make some obvious blunder.  Your recent experience has shown me that this is not always true.   In looking at the details of the error, I did notice that early on there is talk about not enough storage.  Is there anything that you are doing different from your regular procedure?  Are you stacking larger groups of frames in a color?  I have been stacking in groups of 3 or 4 regular 2K frames.

I just ran a quick test where I stacked 10 frames and then stacked 27 frames.  It sat there and thought about the 27 frame stack for a little while but there was no error message when the frame was written.  It doesn't seem like I've been able to come up with any good suggestions.  I guess someone who knows what they're doing will get back to you!

 Good luck,
