LT3750 - controlling the capacitor charging current


I'm using the LT3750 to charge a capacitor to 240V from a 8VDC source.

The capacitor is charged in ~200msec to the target voltage with an input current (from the 8V) of 1.1A and slowly decrease to ~0.6A.

I'd like to decrease the input current to 0.6Arms max and I don't mind to have a longer charging time consequently.

How can I control the input current (or the charging rate)?
