Hi John,

Additionally, adding 'del cam, image' at the end of each loop should help considerably.  The camera object contains the homogenized volume roughly equal to the size of the entire dataset for one field, so I'm guessing that is where most of it is coming from.

Let us know if that doesn't help.

Hi John,

I've found that calling the garbage collector via gc.collect() at the end of a loop over filenames fixes issues like this.  Probably worth a try, anyway.

I keep using up the memory on the machine with the following script, which creates a time series object and runs through the pfs to create each image. Is there other memory I should be freeing up at each iteration in the loop?
