Polar Align Assistant crashing Kstars in latest version #45625
I downloaded the new version of Kstars to my RPi4 running Stellarmate. I tried the polar alignment assistant that I always use and it keeps crashing Kstars when running the solver. I'm using the astronomy.net offline solver, didn't have any problems in the previous version. The only difference was that I tried PHD2 instead of the internal guider. The solver works as usual for everything else but just seems to crash when polar aligning.

I've attached a log file of the alignment module hopefully there is enough information so that someone who understands it can help me?

I tried again last night with the same result. The polar align assistant crashes Kstars.

Polar Align Assistant crashing Kstars in latest version #45780
I got the ASTAP solver working last night. It would not solve using my guide scope and camera (what I usually use for polar align assistant) but when I used my primary scope and camera it crashed Kstars, the same result as when using the astronomy.net offline solver. So for me the polar align assistant is not working at all.

Polar Align Assistant crashing Kstars in latest version #47050
I downloaded the latest version yesterday and both my Mac and Ubuntu box now cannot use the Polar alignment module either. It starts off ok, but hangs up when it tries to slew to the first position. But when I stop the process, Kstars crashes to the desktop and at that exact same time the mount starts slewing to the next position. But of course Kstars has quit so I have to relaunch it. Very odd.
