Is it possible to add a faster slew rate choice to EQMOD?

I'm using EQMOD to control an HEQ5 Pro.

I have four options, the fastest being "800."  I know how to add more options, but it seems the highest available speed is still 800.  Is there any way to add, say 1000, or 1200?

Or, is this not advisable due to being too fast for the motors?  I'm constantly monitoring the scope, not worried about it hitting anything.  Would just like it to slew a bit faster.

Thanks!

Steve

Did you consider making this request to the EQMOD Project? On the left side there is  Help and Support link and that has a broken link to the EQMOD Forum <- This link works :-) You might have better luck asking there. It's a busy forum with over 1,000 members.

Thanks!  I wasn't aware of the forum yet, I'll try there.

And thanks for the working link!
