I checked  the set up and found the date changed to23 Oct 2099, I also checked the site,it was back to Rochester .reset it to toronto. Tried the telescope , would not go to properly. Rechecked the date and site,both  back to  Oct 2099 and rohester. Tried a number of times sometimes the date would  be corect  but the site wrong  or both or vice versa .also the time was off                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      pleas help

Hi Ron,


There was a date (number) rollover on the gps satellites that has adversely affected older scopes.  Fixes for all but LS mounts are available on meade.com in the AutoStar Updater program.  Update your scope's software with the updater and, most likely, your problem will be fixed.  If not, call Meade Customer Support at 1 (800) 626-3233 and let them know about it.


Hope this helps,

Just got off the phone with Meade Tech support and if you have a rollover problem 4.2L will fix it.
