To get myself started with imaging and stacking deep sky objects I took six shots of M31, intending to load them on to Registax.  I was unable to get it to accept more than one.   If I tried a second, the first one was simply replaced.

What am I doing wrong?   Lots I expect

Don't use registax. Ist a stacking software for planetary/lunar imaging. If you're running windows, download DeepSkyStacker and use that, there are plenty of great tutorials on YouTube on how to use it (it's pretty straight forward)

Make sure you download the x64 bit version.  Yes - look at the YouTube videos.

Registax is for the moon/planets and works very poorly even for that.

DSS (Deep Sky Stacker) is what you need to use for DSO's. It's now in Version 4.2.2
