Re: iEXOS-100 slow slew rate in SharpCap

No, you have to rotate the mount yourself in SharpCap.

I like using the slew buttons because if you disengage the RA clutch you're likely to also knock the DEC axis a few degrees in the process - especially on a mount as small as this, and it will invalidate your polar alignment.

Anyway, rotating for polar alignment is not the only reason I don't want to spend an hour to move the scope from one side of the mount to the other.
