I recently purchased a second hand Celestron CPC 8 and I’m having unusual issues with the GPS system.
It has the NexStar * HC with version NXS 4.18 software
MC: 5.14 5.14
When the GPS is turned on the HC says “CPC ready” just about instantly. I did leave the power supply hooked up to the scope for 48 hours recently with the HC disconnected.
When I go into scope setup it shows the time 30 mins behind e.g scope shows 18:17:22 when local time is actually 18:47. Also the date shows 01/01/00.
The longitude/latitude is also incorrect but only out by a small amount but enough.
Scope shows 138”50”16 East & 35’10’20 South
My location in South Australia is 138”83”64 East & 35.17.44 South
what is most confusing is that when I attempt to correct the Lat/Long manually I am unable to change the number 50 (in the 138”50”16) to 83. It jumps back as if I’m inputting a wrong value.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
