I am new to AP and a Mac user. Always have been! Is there anyone doing their complete process from image acquisition to processing on a Apple Mac? I just dropped a lot of money (for me) into equipment and don’t want to have to spend more on buying a pc laptop. I see that PHD2 works on the Mac. What else is there for capturing that would work natively on a Mac?
What Mac software for capturing?

I’m completely in the Mac system. I use Nebulosity 4 for capture. You have to buy a license which is around $85-90.

KStars/EKOS, works on all platforms.
There's (AFAIK) also native INDI for the Mac, to directly connect to the devices, but you might consider a separate Raspberry Pi at the mount for device control.

I use the CloudMakers suite of software for acquiring: AstroImager, AstroGuider, AstroTelescope and Astrometry.
Low cost and they work quite well. Constant improvements and the developer listens to the users.
Then I use AstroPixelProcessor for processing.
