When the EQ5 is switched on, it assumes it is pointed at the north pole (RA == local sidereal time, DE == +90 degrees). Then it needs alignment with at least 1 star in order to be able to know where it really is pointing at. Typically a 2 or 3 star alignment improves this knowledge considerably. If I then would disengage the locks on the axes, the mount would lose alignment and not know where it is pointing at. The AZEQ6 does have encoders which make sure that the mount does not lose alignment in such a case. As soon as the mount is switched off again, it loses all knowledge of where it was pointing at, hence the assumption that it is pointing at the north pole when it is switched back on.

There are mounts that can store the alignement model and where it was pointing at when switched off but the EQ5 is not one of them.

Florian, that's strange. For me KStars is starting up fine now.

Eric, sorry I was confused with the AZEQ6 which does have them. Indeed, the HEQ5-Pro doesn't.

Rob, you nailed it! KStars now starts fine for me. Unfortunately I removed all data directories in an attempt to get it working last night so I have to start over but it is no big deal. The only thing is that I needed to create the ~/Library/Application Support/kstars directory by hand because KStars refused to start without it. Once I did that, however, all is fine. Thanks very much for the hard work you did to fix this!

I changed both files but, sorry, it didn't work. I still get the same error :(

Lots of output which I captured in a txt file by adding a 2>&1 redirect. See the attached file.

I meant: I first tried /Applications/kstars.app/Contents/Resources and tried to start KStars but got the error. Then i tried /Applications/kstars.app/Contents/MacOS and got the same error. I even tried having the file with those contents in both directories at the same time but still I got the error.

I tried both places and tried to start KStars from the command line but got the same error:

$> /Applications/kstars.app/Contents/MacOS/kstars
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "cocoa"
in "".

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Any command line options you'd like me to add to increase the verbosity of the output?

Sure:

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'New guiding Algorithm - SEP ??' in the forum. yesterday

I am testing it right now and it seems to be as good as the smart algorithm though the guide star gets drawn inside the square better. Still, I get an overall RMS of 0.6" which is great! And coming back to http://indilib.org/forum/general/3251-guding-gones-wild-in-ra-on-gemini-2.html?start=12#25437your comment in the Guiding Gone Wild topic, I am doing this on the RPi3 running Ubuntu Mate and the latest KStars stable build directly via pulse guiding on the EQMod cable so no ST4 guiding. Great!

Same here. I completely removed KStars via App Cleaner, including the ~/Libary/Application Support/Kstars (of kstars I am not sure about the capital K) directory and reinstalled. Immediate crash. I have attached the crash log.
