Somewhere, I've missed checking a box or something. When I convert my Canon CR2 files to .fit or .xisf format, the resulting images are converted from color to gray. Cannot figure where I've made a mistake.
Canon CR2 images converted to Gray when formated to .fit or .xisf in Pixinsight

If "Pure Raw" is selected it'll open DSLR files as black and white. If you check "deBayer RGB" it'll debayer the images as they're opened up.

A hearty thank-you to both fellows who answered my post. I think I've figured out a part of my problem. Last astrophotography I did was with a Canon Digital Rebel 350dx and a Canon 20Da. I purchased a Canon 60Da a couple of weeks ago and Canon changed the download file format. I cannot process the CR2 files the way I did the older camera files. Pixinsight is so exhaustive in its treatment and tools, I have a hard time keeping up with them and what each does. I almost think Pixinsight was more for the CCD crowd than the DSLR bunch. Anyway, I'll keep trying and sooner or later I'll get the "hang" of it.
I will present you with an image of what I've been doing. It is of M42 and the center is all blown out but very little processing has been done to the photograph. No darks, no dark/flats, no flat frames. Just the 5 minute subs. Thank you guys again for being willing to help.
