I don't think that is quite right. I've been chasing down an issue in the ASCOM driver where it fails to notify PHD2 when a guiding pulse is complete till very late. So in response to a guiding command Mg (followed by n/e/s/w for direction and nnnnn for duration in ms) e.g. Mge00678 a follow up X34 command returns m40 meaning the mount is guiding in RA. Once guiding is complete the X34 command returns m10. At least thats how it looks.

One status command you might be interested in is :X34# it will return something like m00# where the first 0 is for RA, second 0 is for DEC. The higher the number, the faster that axis is moving. m10# indicates RA tracking only while m54# would indicate a fast slew on RA, and slightly slower slew on DEC.
