Telescope with video port?

Is there a telescope that has a means to port a high resolution image directly to a computer?

No, not in a telescope, though there are some spotting scopes that have a digital camera built-in with a video port. Try the Celestron Vistapix, for instance. However, these are low magnification instruments of only limited use for astronomy, if that is your application.
