I have a Takahashi EM-400 Temma 2M mount that only has a "Power" on/off button. As soon as I turn it on, the mount starts slewing at the set rate if the clutches are tightened. Is it feasible to add a couple of additional switches for "Computer" and "Motor" on/off control, as more modern Takahashi mounts include? I could not find any references to the possibility of such modifications, but they should be possible.

 

Thank you.
