Good job on solving the issue. What, in the end, was the solution for you? It may help others if they encounter similar problems...

pyfits and netpbm were missing

I had to first install pip outside brew
pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/#installing-with-get-pip-py
then pip install pyfits
then brew install netpbm

Seems like I'm having the same issue with Astrometry. I have home-brew installed and with it, I installed netpbm but I'm so confused about pip! I downloaded the get-pip.py file and tried to run curl bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py -o get-pip.py in MacTerminal (I assume this is where I run it?) then I do python get-pip.py and it acts like it's going to install but then tells me this...

Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/pip'
Consider using the `--user` option or check the permissions.

I'm not very savvy on code and I'm always confused as to where to run commands since all these package installers never give detailed instructions. Also, how did you find out that you were missing pyfits and netpbm?? How can I see what I'm missing?

You would need to run:
sudo python get-pip.py
and use sudo for the rest of the install

I have removed the [SOLVED] as it is not solved in Ekos.
All I was able to solved is the command line resolver and not Ekos.

I am aware that Rob has a new version of OSX Ekos, but I can not compile it on this laptop nor have the time.
Will have to use the online astrometry this evening.

I have received the following message from Rob:
go into the KStars app bundle, into the folder MacOS/python/bin/ Please make sure that python is called python2.7 not python. if it has the other name, rename the file.

I have done as instructed and the internal solver now works fine.
