Filter wheel crash/ No slew zone

Hi Folks,
I have recently invested in a filter wheel and have started to run into the problem of the filter wheel crashing into my pier. I have set the altitude limit to 75deg in Ekos but during a slew or a meridian flip I have still seen cases where it hits off the pier.
Is there a way to define a no slew zone for a mount so that it never slews close enough to touch of the pier? Or has anyone else encountered this issue and how has it been dealt with.

I’m using a 6”RC with .67 reducer filter wheel OAG and AA26C mounted on an celestron AVX which sits on dedicated telescope pier.

Thanks

Lenny.
