Hey, I'm new to KStars/Ekos so here is my setup. Astroberry on Pi4b, Sony A6300, Star Adventurer(Mount SImulator is used)

During polar alignment after taking and successfully solving the first image, when taking the first image app crashes constantly. That happens only on the second iamge
The stacktrace is the following:

Thank you for the report. Can you please provide 3 test exposures? Here is how:

1. Start from parking position, then take an exposure in FITS. Save it.
2. Rotate mount by 15 to 30 degrees, take another exposure.
3. Repeat #2 once more.

Zip the 3 images and post a link to download them.

Hey Jasem, I think this is a duplicate issue to indilib.org/forum/ekos/10265-polar-align...-crash.html?start=12
One of the reasons for the crash is that I can't get the second image according to the stack trace. Seems that we can't proceed further loading FITS but only for the second iamge.

What is important is that that happens only to GPhoto CCD with Sony A6300. I managed to successfully polar align with ZWO mini guide cam

That files were taken not exactly using Ekos, but manually. It is impossible to take 3 files since a crash occurs right after the first one and before displaying the second one

FITS format is required, not raw. You don't need to use align, use capture module to capture them in FITS. Sorry I didn't make this clear earilar. Capture 1, then rotate 30, capture another, then rotate another 30, then capture final FITS.
