Yes, but not by much. You'll notice that each axis has "two-stage" knobs. The smaller diameter end-knobs turn the gears and the larger diameter, relatively thin "rubber ninja star' knobs at the base of each axis are used to disengage the threads on that axis. So, for rapid movement, to align with more-or-less your desired direction, you rotate and hold the inner knob to disengage an axis, and then it smoothly rotates to wherever you want. It's generally best to do one axis at a time, 'lest you move stuff too fast (it's like a loose ball head in the disengaged axes dire4ctions), and lose control of your gears.
