I don't know about the Meade units, but the Celestron has this feature. For the most part it will work but I still don't know if you can bank on it. I got a new HC once and the scope went crazy before it finally settled down.

Now that I'm back up and running (one Mother Board later), I'll put the scope through some "dry runs" to see if this method seems to do the trick. Needless to say I'm a little gun shy, and was curious if others had experienced the same problem and how they avoided repeating the same mistake. Thanks for the support!

Sorry to hear about your run in. Yes you can set the slew limits to a different value (80,75...)And indeed the scope will not slew past these imposed stops. But! There is always a but It will track past those stops so be careful.

That's a good point. It's easy to overlook the obvious, and I probably wouldn't have thought about that one. Thanks a lot.
