You might want to give Meade Customer Support a call at 1 800-626-3233 (USA Only) I think they have an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. It is not listed on their web page, but I think it still works.
I don't have any information on the NG series and would most likely lead you astray with any guesses.
If you cannot make the free phone call or cannot get them on that email address, let me know and I will make the call and report back.
So far, there have not been any complaints here on that mount, and normally no news is good news. However, any information you care to share on your experiences would be greatly appreciated.
Also, any adventures in the cosmos, what you see and your thoughts about it, give ideas and encouragement to others. I, personally, enjoy reading things like that and I think other readers do as well.
Congratulations on your new scope. I hope you have a lot of fun with it!
