I really can not see a problem on the driver/stepper end of it running a telescope mount in tracking (which I believe is .04 deg/min) to slewing at 6 to 15 deg/s a minute.
This is basically the problem.  At 15 degrees/minute, it will take 12 minutes to move 180 degrees.  Are you ready to wait that long for it to move from the North American nebula to the Orion Nebula?
