I you have saved some of those unsolved images (/tmp/*.fits), could you provide them for further investigation?

ASTAP checklist:

- at least 30 stars are visible
- reasonable round stars
- image size at least 1.5 megapixels
- correct fov specified

I am not sure about a moonlite bug, but I guess it is possible that I built this DMG before he fixed the bug? I am going to build a new DMG shortly and we will see if the problem still exists.

Lead_weight,

Yes Astrometry.net greatly depends on Python 3. If there are any issues with its installation, there would be problems with astrometry.net. ASTAP, however, should not be affected by that. But ASTAP is very finicky I have found. On some images, it works immediately and efficiently, others it doesn't solve at all.


What’s the right version of Python 3? I have multiple versions installed, which could be conflicting.

So the version of python3 I have it setup to use by default is the homebrew python3. But you should be able to change that by typing in the path to your folder python3 is located in in the astrometry preferences/options in KStars. You also need to be sure that whatever python3 you are using has astropy installed in its site packages. You can always test from the command line (making sure that you enter all the commands KStars is using) and hopefully you can find out any issues python or astrometry.net is having.

Then I'll try to explain it:
To do the tests, I've always used the simulator.
I tried not only this beta of yours, but an earlier version, and even with this one I had the same problem.
Regarding the last advice, unfortunately the google translator doesn't
he did the translation well, so I didn't understand anything.
As for the speech at the Terminal, unfortunately, I didn't.
I know how to use, so I don't know what to do.
Maybe if you can explain me step by step the procedures, as you would with a child, maybe I could do it ;-)
As far as Python is concerned, I clicked on the setup button
and I left it up to him, so I don't know if it was all installed and
if everything has been installed correctly.
Thanks

Something must be dorfed with my Mac's setup. Just like the previous version, when I try to run the Simulators profile it complains about inability to connect on 7642.

carkinzo,

I don't suspect that your python version is causing any problems, that post was for "Lead_weight" not you.

Here is an example of what Wouter was describing. I did this just now in the latest version of KStars and took a screenshot. First make sure that Logging is turned on for Alignment, you will see more about what is going on in KStars


Then plate solve an image in the simulator. You should see lots of things print out in the console. Copy and paste the line that says "export PATH= . . . " Hit enter. Also copy and paste the line that says "/Applications/KStars.app . . ." Then hit enter. Be sure you don't copy anything that is not commands, like dates, time stamps, etc. In this screen shot, I show you the exact commands that I copied and pasted. And how it looks in terminal when I do so. Just be careful you don't get extra stuff like "Starting solver" in there.

I hope you mean 7624 not 7642?? If you are trying to connect to the wrong port, that could explain why it can't find the indi server

This is what I get in the window below the solver using either Astap or Offline Atrometry. Online astrometry works. I don't see any commands being issued. The settings show everything is installed including all astrometry files. If I try to set up python, it says they're all already installed. I think because I installed python 3.8 for Mount Wizard to run, it somehow messed things up. But I don't know enough about any of it to fix it.

2020-01-30T20:50:44 Solver failed. Try again.
2020-01-30T20:50:44 Starting solver...
2020-01-30T20:50:44 Image received.

2020-01-30T20:49:52 Solver failed. Try again.
2020-01-30T20:49:39 Starting solver...

Here's my log if that sheds any more light on it.

So I made another DMG because they said they worked on some things related to a crash. Also, this one does include LIMESDR, INDI Webcam, and RTLSDR which were missing from the last build due to build issues, which now seem to be resolved.

Please make sure there are no new issues.

Lead_weight,

I just took a look at your log. This is the critical set of lines:

"AttributeError: 'NoPyfits' object has no attribute 'open'\naugment-xylist.c:589:backtick Failed to run command: "

Based on what I see here, I'm pretty sure that the issue is that it can't find either the pyfits or the astropy packages (astropy is preferable now). You can probably easily solve this by just installing astropy in all of your python3 installations and then whichever one it ends up using, it will have astropy installed. For an example, assuming python3 Is already installed in /usr/local/bin:

/usr/local/bin/pip3 install astropy

or pip install astropy

or whatever pip/python you have installed at whatever path it is located.
