I guess you could issue commands like this from the Arduino Serial Monitor:

Start tracking...

Set rate 2 which is 1x sidereal then guide east for 2 seconds, RA axis (normally moving at 1x) should then stop for 2 seconds...

Set axis1 custom guide rate to 2.0 degrees/second, then move east, then stop...

Without the new code the following should result in 2 seconds of rapid motion, with the new code it should act as before stopping tracking...
