Solar or lunar speed ? was created by Frank

Hello,
I'm very happy to use Stellarmate for my astrophotography sessions.
Now, I would like to use it for my solar or lunar sessions.
Do you know how to change the speed tracking ? 

And, why not, is-it possible to align the mount to the sun (entire) ?
Thank you,
Frank

Hi Frank,
Can you check in the Indi Control Panel then Mount settings and look for Track Mode ?
I've had success with aligning the mount to north during the day with just a compass, then levelling the mount and setting the altitude to my latitude, as you do normally. For my ZenithStar 61 it's accurate enough to track the Sun for video.
