Ok, I see.  No, KStars doesn't account for this configuration.  You can file a 
wish at bugs.kde.org.  

In the meantime, you can create a custom geographic location for yourself.  In 
the Set Location window, when your home location is selected in the list, 
you'll see all of its data in the fields at the bottom of the window, 
including its timezone information.  You can simply set the UT offset to 0.00 
and the DST rule to "--".  You also might want to rename the city (if you 
live in "Springfield", you could rename it "Springfield (UT)", for example).  
Then press the "Add to List" button, which will make this custom location 
available in future sessions.  If you leave it set on this location, it will 
startup the next time with it selected as well, and the clock will be set to 

Unfortunately, you won't have access to the true local time in the program, 
but at least the sky will display correctly.

hope it helps,
