Why didn the StarDate GPS Adapter update my time zone/daylight savings time setting?
If you travel with your telescope and use the StarDate GPS Adapter to align your telescope, you may find that your time zone and/or daylight savings time settings are not updated in the telescope hand controller. Your Celestron telescope requests GPS time and date in UTC (Universal Coordinated Time), and performs its alignment based on UTC time. In fact, the NMEA protocol used by your GPS receiver doesn’t have any means of specifying time zone or daylight savings time, so the telescope can only align based on UTC time. If you wish to change time zone or daylight savings time settings in the hand controller, you must do it manually.
