Astrometry files are here:
I know there is a space in the location but it normally work.
Changed the index file path to : /Users/greg/Documents/Astrometry
but still didn't work.

At first I thought, "spaces"... really? then I noticed there was a space in the application name since I have two copies of the app. I changed it to Kstars2 and its working now. Sheesh!
