Guide speed (1x) compensates for the Earth's rotation making stars stand-still. Slow speed (4x) allows ultra-fine position changes to center objects in the eyepiece or Viewfinder. Fast (8x) speed allows relatively quick gross incremental changes in location. With tracking mode turned off, the Guide speed accelerates to 32x; Slow speed to 64x; and Fast becomes a speed-demon at 800x.
Latitude scale for adjustment of the telescopes equatorial orientation during the set-up process to facilitate more accurate tracking
