The problem occurs when trying to Align stacks using WCS or apertures.
Using any set of images (e.g. the WASP-12b demo set) load 2-3 images into a stack, not a virtual stack. (File-import-image sequence…)
Align the stack: Process-align stack using WCS or apertures
Place 1 or more apertures then right click or Enter to process.
The program stops.
The stack aligner helps looks like this:
Repeatable every time. Happens in single step mode also, program stops immediately.
Now, with the same stack, do a Multi-aperture analysis.
Place apertures, Select any star, doesn’t matter.
The program processes the stack.
Close out of all multi aperture windows.
Now go back and do a stack align. It Works! The Align using WCS or apertures will now work on any image stack, as long as you don’t close out of Astroimagej ! If you do close the program you have to start over with another Multi-aperture. It seems doing a Multi-aperture “un sticks” something or resets/sets a flag/file to allow placing apertures on successive images in a stack??
I’m not sure but I think this problem is recent? Seemed to work fine until a month or so ago???
I am running
Please let me know if you need more info. Thanks for a GREAT program! - Basil
Thank you for the detailed report. I think I have introduced a stack-aligner bug in latest daily build, and your
detailed workaround info is actually a very good clue to what may be wrong. Unfortunately, I will not have time to try
to find a fix immediately. Could you please try the latest released version 3.2.0 and let me know if that fixes the problem?
