AstroPlanner Beta Testing

Introduction

Anyone is free to download and test the latest beta version of the application. Please note that beta versions of the application have a built-in expiration date that is 120 days after the release date. After that date, you can still use it, but you'll be "nagged" to download a more recent release. This is to prevent bugs being reported on older beta versions that have already been fixed in later releases.

Please discuss beta issues only on the Beta Testers mailing list. Click here to join/leave the list.

Hard crash when trying to edit telecope resource

I am using the 64 bit beta version of AP. I was investigating how to install my telescope, and so under resources/edit I had selected my mount (a Skywatcher SynScan Go To) and then clicked on Edit. This is when AP crashes out. I have tried it several times and each time it has crashed.

I am using an iMac (mid 2010 build) and OSX Sierra ver 10.12.6.
