Glad I was able to help.
On Sunday the mount goes in a box, and I will see it gain until November, when I unpack it in Uganda.
I hope you are able to solve this issue, but if not, we can try again after I get settled back in.

Another attempt with INDI logs on, and trying to start up from KSTARS and then EKOS. Trying to find something different - but I still get the same error message and crash.

I forgot the INDI log. I went back in and turned on the INDI logging, then connected with the internal server, which of course crashed right away.
Here's the log:

Here's the log from the terminal, following your instructions.
The Connect green light is on, but the scope does not respond to any commands.

Here's some screenshots showing what I trying to do, and perhaps it's just user error. I will post server logs soon.

Thanks again Rob. So what should I do after I start up INDI server from the command line?
Should I start KSTARS and try and connect from the "local" service, or connect remotely. If remotely, how exactly do I do that?

Also - I think it would be best if have KSTARS running my mount properly before I attempt to move into EKOS, do you agree?

Thanks Rob, I'll try this. Question: You stated I should "connect to a "remote" indiserver called local host."
Can you please break that down into specific steps? I had been simply selecting Device - CEM25 from the Device Manager and then choosing "Local" and then "Run Service" since the scope is attached to the same computer. How do "connect to a "remote" indiserver called local host." from the device manager?
Thanks again for your help.

I downloaded the updated version and I still get the same error, and cannot connect a CEM25 to KStars with OSX.
Everything starts up one, until:

I am unable to get Stars and EKOS to work with my Mac and operate the CEM25. I have no trouble with Cloudmakers' AstroTelescope and their INDI driver for the CEM25, but the build-in driver in Star still fails. Anyone know when the next update will be? Thanks!

Ok, I just installed a driver for the serial/usb adapter and tried to connect with Stars again.
This time the mount seemed to connect - but then I got another error - but a different one.
It just said that INDI crashed. I attached the new log.

Thanks, at least I now know that I was not just inexperienced.
Do you know if this was this fixed in Cloudmaker's INDI Server?
If so, how do I connect to that server instead of the internal one?

Thanks!

Peter Kennett created a new topic ' KSTARS fails with CEM25 connection on Mac OSX 10.11' in the forum. 2 months ago

On my Mac Mini running OSX 10.11, I have a serial to USB connection to an iOptron CEM25P mount. It works great with SkySafari, and Cloudmakers' AstroTelecope, so the cable connections is working fine. But I am having trouble with KSTARS. I can get the mount to connect using several other mount drivers, but they do not allow me to control the scope. But when I try and connect using the CEM25 or CEM60 drivers, it goes through the connection process but then I get an error message that states "Connection to INDI host at localhost on port 7624 lost. Server disconnected". Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks for any advice.
