I just bought the same camera and an Orion 50mm guidescope. Also picked up a Fuji X-M1 camera on EBay that I am going to try for astrophotography. It has an APS-C sensor but uses a Fuji's X-Trans color filter array rather than the usual Bayer array( www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x-e1/3). Also produces different .raf raw files. I plan on converting to full spectrum.

So I am one step nearer to launching into the INDI world!

Before you go digging into Kstars/INDI code I would first check that your wife's computer has at least 4GB memory or preferably 8GB. You may even have failing memory issues. Also try upgrading from HDD to SSD - this is well worthwhile and is very easy do do (check out www.macsales.com/ for compatible SSD and additional memory).

I have a 2012 MBA with 8GB memory and a 50 0GB SSD. Works like a charm with all sorts of development stuff installed - Xcode, Macports, XAMPP, VirtualBox (often running Win 7/10 or various Linux versions), etc. I have set up an INDI server on my spare PI yet, but its on my list!

I can't keep up with you!! Just finished installing previous version! Updated and installed this latest version successfully and programming runs ok so far.

I am using a MacbookAir 2012 with 2G i7 and 8G memory running Sierra 10.12.3.Beta (16D12b)

I have been following this thread and have downloaded and installed Kstars on my MBA via this dmg file. I don't have my scope and mount fully functional yet so cannot test all the functionality, but can confirm that the program appears to install and work. Only issue I had was with "setup", which I clicked wrong box and lost, but that s a user/kstars issue.

I'll be watching for any updates and as soon as my scope is up and running will test the other features.

GEAT WORK!PRIV
