      When the hit is confirmed press UNDO and check that the stars you have found are actually the ones that you looked at. Once last year I had Betelgeuse confirmed as Mars - ok both red but I have always checked since then. The other things to check are obviously the lat and long - worth being as precise as possible - and obviously the time and date. Currently you should be -5 hrs from GMT with no daylight saving.
