For additional information and tips on using the Meade Autostar and ETX/LXD telescopes I highly recommend visiting: Using Star GPS-NX This section describes how to use Star GPS-NX.

You should be aware that there are additional parts of the initialization sequence that Star GPS cannot perform.

Fortunately, the keypad supplies these parameters even in the External Startup Mode.

For example, for those of us in the US who might be setting up in the evening, UT may already be into "tomorrow," so tomorrow's date could be the correct entry.

Likewise, an Australian setting up his or her keypad in the morning might need to remember that it is still "yesterday" in UT.

Note: For the most efficient use of Star GPS with your Astro-Physics GTO system, we recommend that you change the way you have your keypad set up.

Since the GPS uses Universal Time, and the keypad starts from local time, there is the potential for timing issues that affect precise calculation of the meridian (overhead hour angle) and the horizons.
