I just finished hauling stuff inside (clouds moved in), so I fired up NINA and tried it. I moved from EDT to UTC with NINA open. It did not adjust on the fly, but I closed NINA and restarted it, and the sky atlas shows M31 appropriately, as well as the correct time for sunrise, set. etc in UTC time.

Note APCC has sites with their own time zone setting. I have no idea how they will react if they are not the same. I don't have the mount hooked up at present.

So I changed pc manual time settings to UTC, now it’s Friday at 02:35 UTC 0.
Nina sky Atlas even though my lat/long is set to somewhere in New Mexico, sky atlas is showing M31 at it’s western altitude. So when using UTC settings how does one tell Nina the object is up, or even East or west of meridian ?

NINA should take its time zone from the PC's time zone setting, so if you changed the zone (not just the time) it should just know. But you might need to restart NINA if you have not since changing the time zone.

Did NINA on the sky atlas have proper times for things like subset, moonise, etc?
