That was it !
The Snoop Device was set to Telescope Simulator and not Celestron GPS.
You are great ! And if my first name is JC (Jean-Claude), you are no doubt SuperStar !
Thank you

I use MaxDome II to slave my dome to my scope with KStars.
But when I slew the scope to a target, the dome doesn't move although Slaving has been enabled.
I encounter the same problem when I use AStroTelescope ( of Cloudmakers) instead of KStars : my dome doesn't move.
Is my problem linked to KStars, Cloudmakers or the INDI driver ?

They just reappeared after a restart.
Solved.

In KStars, I checked the menu Settings > Show Info Boxes and the three Time + Focus + Location boxes.
These boxes remain however invisible .
How could I make them reappear ?

Well ... I reply to myself because it's now working !
And I don't know why.

I am using the Simulators and the Offline solver.
Everything worked beautifully until I clicked on Restore Defaults in the Options. After this all my trials failed .
I reinstalled KStars and follow the instruction to install the astrometry.net feature (they were already checked in the Wizard).

I get this message :
2017-07-19T18:15:36 Solver failed. Try again.
2017-07-19T18:15:36 This program is part of the Astrometry.net suite.

What shall I do ?

Hi Jasem,
All this was my fault because I didn't install astrometry.net as described in "KStars for Mac Quick Start Guide"
Plate solving Offline works now beautifully.
Regards,

I clicked on Options > Advanced > Verbose and run the autofocus again.

I'm at discovering KStars 2.7.9 with the built-in Simulators profile.
I selected Tarazed, slew to it, Preview, Auto focus complete.
Then I tried to Capture & Solve : it worked Online but repeatedly failed Offline.
I downloaded the whole 2Mass Catalog (31 GB of data !) with Astrometry of CloudMakers.
What am I doing wrong ?

Here are the logs for the Online success and the Offline failure :
