  1. My club's Atlas is stuck on the date 11/13/2099. Last night was 6/28/2019. Every time I reset the date and started the 3 star alignment the scope chose Vega and then pointed to the western sky - sorta wonky. When I tried a second star it aimed at a totally wrong part of the sky. I went back to date and it had reset to the11/13/2099 date. The mount has a working GPS module. I went through all the menus and there was no place other than the " sub menu to attempt to replace the errant date. After five tries I gave up. Apparently the GPS was accurate to withing a stride or two. What should I try next? I know my club; they'd rather stuff it in a corner than take the time or money to fix it. So it will be m time and my money. I used the mount several times this year and had no problem.
