Can SkySafari 6 Plus Track Object Drifts And Help Me To Adjust Motors Speed On A Simple Encoders Alt-AZ Push-To Dob?

I am using 10' dobson with simple encoders on AZ/ALT with SS6 Plus. Basically Alt-AZ Push-To system.

After alignment pushing to objects works great with SS6 Plus.

Now I installed DIY motors with slow gears and a speed controllers on each axis. I need to adjust speed manually but this works great and I can center an object.

I am adjusting motors speed by looking at drifting object in the eyepiece now but my question is;

Can you see drifts on SS6 Plus with crosshair or indication of some numbers to help me to adjust motors speed?

Thanks for your advise in advance.

    What are you using for the encoder interface?

    I am interested in going in this direction with a home brew 10 Dob
