You might find one of the new inexpensive GPS's (around $100) to be of more
use.  It will give you an extremely accurate time, as well as your exact
latitude and longitude, which is of use if you have a GOTO type scope.  I
use a Garmin GPS III with my LX-200 to get the time and position when I
observe from places other than home and it works great.  It also keeps me
from getting lost when I'm in the mountains riding my ATV!
