Meade 90mm what? If it is an ETX-90, you actually have something quite close in terms of resolution and image brighntess to a TV85, but not quite as good in terms of contrast and overall image quality. If it is a DS90, will not be close, no. Remember, too, that there is also a matter of fit, finish and mechanical quality, not to mention pride of ownership for something made in the US and, in that respect, Televue is as good as it gets.
