I have deleted KStars app and all config files and restarted all over with your DMG.
The only issue that still active is the first one (no image shown when capturing). All others solved, so something went wrong with my DMG.

Well in my case the summary window simply does not display de captured image, and I verified, the option is turned on in the settings.
This also happens with simulators. I know this happened some time ago too. I can't figure out what's happening.

The geographic location issue, i have noticed, is random, sometimes it displays the correct location, some don't.
I will investigate this issue better and report. Tonight I will make another AF run to see what happens.

I don't know if it's relevant but I am build from sources on Mojave.

I have built a new DMG yesterday and tested the version, I found three problems:

1 - Captured images are not displayed in the summary window (old problem I think)
2 - In the focuser module, the focus star is lost during autofocus, it seems it can not find it on the cropped square.
3 - Every time I start Kstars it looses my Geographic location (Lisbon, Portugal) and defaults to Greenwich UK.

I have no logs from it. I have to test again.

That the issue I reported some days ago. The astrometry binaries really have problems. I recompiled them and it worked ok.

I just tried to build a new DMG for KStars but it's failing on dbus.
Anyway, astrometry binaries still compile and work fine. So maybe it's just a build thing.

In my case yes I did, removed KStars and all dependent files withh AppRemover.
A new install gives a broken astrometry solver. I can also get it to work with external solver (homebrew install).

I was having that issue too but on real captured images, the solver stops crashing immediatly.
The problem is with the astrometry binary files, I have recompiled and replaced them on the the app folder and it's working now.

On my portable setup wich has an RPi I stopped using Wifi, it's too slow specially for my 550D.
I am now using a 5m CAT5 Network cable between the laptop and the RPi. You don't even have to make a crossover cable.
My 550D takes 10-12 seconds to download the image and preview.

Hi!
Since you have a webcamera you are forced to use pulseguide. Either using INDI, wich we don't have a working driver or ASCOM.
CDC uses the internal server of PHD2 to control it. CCDCiel does the same controlling CDC and PHD2. CCDCiel does all you are
asking with some limitations but it works. CDC and PHD2 are independent but can cooperate. Anyway any software you use
will have to connect with INDI or ASCOM to you mount.

We are getting way offtopic because this topic is about INDI LX200 Driver, we should use private messages for further comms.
I will happily help you.

Has a last resource, I would recompile the driver from the sources just to be sure.
Give it a try.

In my case, using ST4, I was selecting On-Camera option. But that requires a camera with ST4 output.
