The driver GUI has NSEW buttons, and you can set the slew rate right there on the same screen. I use the buttons often to center a planet or the Moon when I want to make a "movie" for later processing. Normally I use ACP automation software, which connects to the mount via ASCOM.
I can connect SkyX to the mount via ASCOM even if ACP is already connected. This means I can monitor in SkyX where ACP is pointing the mount, or I can slew the mount in SkyX if ACP is not actively imaging.
In my experience, ASCOM is a wonderful interface, and the A-P driver is great.
