Thanks Hy, everyone.

Yes. That was the offending file (works with git not with stable)
The error upon opening the file is:The file /home/steve/Desktop/comets.dat was opened and contained lines longer than the configured Line Length Limit (10.000 characters).
The longest of those lines was 777.258 characters long
Those lines were wrapped and the document is set to read-only mode, as saving will modify its content.

Removing comets.dat from the folder allows 3.5.5 stable to load and run.
I attach comets.dat.

Thanks again,
Steve

OK. Thanks.
I've narrowed it down to:
~/.local/share/kstars

It's not the sq light databases though. Also, the latest git runs fine on the same box using the same folder.
Attached is a list of files in the kstars folder. Any idea which it could be?

UPDATE:
If I make a new user, it runs fine.
What must I remove from my current user to enable me to run from there?
Cheers

You must use a usb 2 port and have no hub.

Hi

- We use old Dells too. Mainly i3s. Unless you're going to do processing, the amount of memory doesn't seem to make much difference.
- Not sure about the 24-105 for AP, but there are some excellent old fixed focal length lenses from Takumar and Zeiss available on Ebay for under €100 and adapters eos to m42 abundant on AliExpress for next to nothing. Focus once at the start of the session and forget.
- The t7m needs this firmware:
drive.google.com/drive/folders/1eXBCN06U...5QRw9zSO?usp=sharing
Be sure to start the driver in 8-bit.

Cheers and HTH
