Questions about a Vixen DMD-1 Controller

Yes, the left button stops/pauses the RA drive. If you want to reverse direction temporarily, then change the direction switch, then slew with the right button.
Now, my DMD-2 operates very well with 9V power, by either using the 6 "C" battery pack, or a 9V DC adapter. The currently available 12V Vixen AC adapter caused my DMD-2 drive to not operate at all and my DD1 drive to stutter.

In slowest setting, that is correct. The Earth's rotation does the "reverse" for you automagically . It's free and it's green!

With the DMD-1, you have speed control switch, the directions switch and the buttons, so this was confusing. They should have labeled it stop, not an arrow!
