Running Point To Raster has output coordinate system different from input?

I need to transform a DEM from a Point-Feature-Class (Shape) to raster (GRID). For that I'm using the tool 'point to raster' and it works perfectly.

The only problem is that it seems to change the coordinate system, so that my resulting GRID has another system than my Shape.


The Shape has DHDN_3_Degree_Gauss_Zone_3 (which I want to keep), but the resulting GRID has Deutsches_Hauptdreiecksnetz_Transverse_Mercator.

My data frame has the (desired) coordinate system DHDN_3_Degree_Gauss_Zone_3, as well as my output FC. The output coordinate system in the environments is set to 'same as input'. Even though, my output GRID continues to have the Deutsches_Hauptdreiecksnetz_Transverse_Mercator as space reference...


Can anyone tell me why that is and how I can prevent it?


Or is there any way to transform the Transverse_Mercator-system back to Gauss?
