After quite some time and months of waiting for decent weather conditions, Neptun reloaded....

Just a quick test if my Astro equipment is still working fine.

On my LX200, GPS is not working because of the famous "19 year bug".

Some older GPS system chips got the limited 10 bit week counter,
which has a roll-over after 1024 weeks (19 years). Due April 7th. 2019

Now I have to set date and time manually.
Coordinates remain the same, because of my personal observational dome: POD.
