How to Fix Incorrect Local Time on Hand Control When Using GPS

You might find that if you check the local time on the NexStar hand control, that it is wrong, but only in hours.  The scope gets it's time from the GPS satellites which are extremely accurate, but the satellites report Universal Time.  It is up to you to tell the scope what time zone it is located in and whether Daylight Savings Time is in effect.  To do this, press the Menu button, scroll down to Scope Setup, press Enter, scroll to Setup Time-Site, press Enter and insure the correct time zone and either Standard Time or Daylight Savings Time.
