No you can choose your location.

There are a bunch of preset locations defined already. To Choose one:

1) Press F6

2) Next to magnifying glass enter your city it will then give you a set of matching locations.

3) Choose a location

4) Make sure the "Use as Default" checkbox is checked.

If your location is not in there then you'll unfortunately have to find out your co-ordinates (Google Maps?).

Was about to ask the same question until I saw this thread and then this helpful reply :o. Just gotten mine sorted, was hoping to have Saturn within view before I hit the sack tonight but not to be for a fair few hours, and my Binos been buried by a ton of toys and clothes from my sons room.

Helpful program to help learn the night sky:iamwithstupid:
