This has been resolved in Observatory 2.0.7. Quick Look in Observatory 2.0.7 will no longer debayer bias, dark and flat calibration frames, even if it detects a bayer pattern in the header.

I cannot reproduce it. But Observatory 2.0.5 will contain two new settings that may solve the issue for you:

  • The ability to disable library versioning (the Time Machine integration);
  • Explicitly set the number of CPU cores to use for importing.

I am still working on a few other items before releasing it.

Are you actively working on the next update or should I look for another solution (Observatory is useless to me as things stand)?

Sounds like a plan. I look forward to the next update.

All that seems to be Sonoma specific behavior, and document versioning related (Observatory's integrated Time machine support). I wonder if that is the underlying problem, that there is an obscure conflict going on with how Observatory handles versioning and some undocumented changes in Sonoma. I haven't touched that part of the code for years, so it is really a change in Sonoma that causes this.

The Observatory Demo has versioning disabled, but it doesn't allow saving libraries so we cannot test this theory with it.

I'll look into that and also add a few (hidden) settings to Observatory in the next update so that feature can be disabled and we can test if that "solves" it.

What's weird is that I have never seen this behavior myself on Sonoma. I have only been running Sonoma on an Apple silicon machine though, while you run it on an Intel machine. I have now upgraded one of my Intel machines to Sonoma as well, and maybe that allows me to reproduce it.

Successfully loaded several sessions, but when I tried to save, the error msg said the file couldn't be found, try saving a duplicate. When I tried that Observatory hung.

Tried renaming and saving the library, which seemed to work, but when I double-clicked on the file to launch Observatory, two windows appeared and the program crashed, no crash report.

Tried duplicating the file. When I double-click to launch nothing happens. When I tried Open With... two windows opened, then hang.
