I have the same issue with Build: 2020-07-18T05:21:35Z.


Addendum to my earlier reply:

I tried "verbose" mode on solve-field and get:

Thank you for the test version of ksatrs. Unfortunately, the update did not solve the problem for me.

I ran into a problem running the python setup: it verified that home-brew was installed and attempted to instal python. After a short time, it put up a dialog saying: “Python installation failure”.

I opened a terminal window and attempted the installation per your instructions elsewhere in this thread. Home-brew claimed python was installed and up to date. I checked:

Robert-Lucass-Mac-Mini:~ rnlucas$ which python
Robert-Lucass-Mac-Mini:~ rnlucas$ which python3
Robert-Lucass-Mac-Mini:~ rnlucas$ python3 -V
Python 3.7.3

After this, I retried the setup, and this time it appeared to complete normally.

Robert-Lucass-Mac-Mini:~ rnlucas$ pip install astropy
Requirement already satisfied: astropy in /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages (3.2.1)
Requirement already satisfied: numpy>=1.13 in /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages (from astropy) (1.16.4)

However, it still seems to fail in the same way (from Ekos):

I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.5.



I'm having exactly the same issue with Kstars v3.2.3 on a MacMini running Mojave (latest version). Is there any fix available that doesn't require recompilation? Thanks.
