I may have figured it out...
Compared 2 locations in Germany, mine and another place, check this out.

Another place not mine


Mine

it looks like I've been beamed to the equator...

That is very strange Stephane, I have no idea how that could have happened.

I guess there could have been some data incorrectly written when it crashed?

Kstars 3.5.0 has been very stable, I was about to put a post about it and then I kid you not 30 sec after I thought about the stability the all thing went batshitcrazy on me. Very spooky.
First time this actual error happened ever. I fixed it after figuring it out, and I'm running 2 sessions now.

One thing that's not quite working well is the guiding, I think I may have a log and will post it another timer, something about exposure timeout.

I just tried to use KStars 3.5 for OSX on my Macbok Air (running Catalina). I found that the app seems to work when not connected to anything, and also when logged into my Linux INDI server at the scope VIA WIFI.
But if I try to connect to the INDI server via Ethernet it crashes to the desktop as soon as it starts loading up the drivers.

I wasted two hours last night trying to figure out why. I rebooted everything multiple times. Every-time I try to connect (via Ethernet) it simply kills KStars.

But, if I go back and try again and connect via WIFI - it connects and starts up the INDI drivers on the Linux machine with no immediate issue.

However - even then it was unstable and crashed at random times. I couldn't see a specific cause. I couldn't waste the lively night anymore and skipped using the Mac and just used the Linux machine only.
I may try again later this week and post logs. But it is so frustrating to go from a stable version before to suddenly having troubles with 3.5.

Yes, that is what we use beta versions for, to find the issues and solve them. It is not guaranteed to be stable yet, that is why it is a beta version. We want you to try it, to test it, to break it, and let us know what breaks and why. Please don't try to rely on a beta version for your main imaging session. We want to make sure everything gets worked out and gets stable before relying on it. 3.5.0 is a major release with a lot of awesome and huge changes. StellarSolver will take the blind solving times from several minutes down to several seconds. We have eliminated temporary files during the image capture, preview, and analysis, so that you computer isn't always saving lots of temp files. We also eliminated temp files for the solving process. We solved the issues with running astrometry.net on different systems, there is now an internal StellarSolver package that will handle it on any operating system with very little configuration needed. Before there were all kinds of issues with python and system configurations and astrometry wouldn't run on windows at all. There are huge changes in this release, so yeah some things will need to be tested, verified, and fixed.

I have been mostly working on getting StellarSolver up and running, so that has been my main focus, rather than any Mac distribution specific issues. I mean I do all my coding on my Mac using the Mac version. That is where I made StellarSolver and have been making all of my changes in KStars, but that is built on my computer to run on my computer. That doesn't guarantee that the distribution version won't have issues. It is hard for me to know whether what works on my computer will work on yours. So that is why we release the beta to get feedback about that.

We will release the 3.5.0 Mac version for real once it is stable and tested. So please test it and let us know what's wrong.

That being said, we probably should release another beta, since I think we have fixed a bunch of issues since I made the last DMG.

I appear to have a similar "bug" but on the RPi version - the horizon is upside down....

I'll do some more testing.

I'm definitely seeing regular crashes of Rob's last 3.5.0 build on MacOS 11.0.1. It's a regular occurrence if I click on the Setup/Summary tab in Ekos while I'm in the middle of an imaging job. I have many crash logs.

I'm trying to get the build script to work here so I can provide better debug information, but that still doesn't work. Trying to work through it.
