Re: Windows timezone settings

Hi Christopher,

 

yes, one certainly can do that but is it necessary?

 

I have all my computers setup for the local time zone and never had a problem with my mounts due to that. Not with Astro-Physics mounts and not with Skywatcher or iOptron mounts.

 

Would I be using my smartphone to control a mount, and would I have to set the smartphone to UT, that would be the moment I would decide to change the mount. The same applies for a tablet.

 

Kind regards,

Horia

I set all of my mounts and astro computers to UT and never change them.

 

Not sarcasm.

Set all of your devices <smartphone, tablet, computer, mount, etc> to Universal Time aka UT & not have to deal with different time zones or daylight savings time vs standard time, either. 

"Set it & forget it"- no more headaches going back & forth with changes in the settings.
