The TEC8 is a fairly expensive scope, is it better than your 10" Meade? only you can decide that. My suggestion is to contact TEC (www.telescopengineering.com) and see if they can help you locate an owner in or close to your area, if there is a TEC8 nearby they will contact the owner first and see if he/she would be willing to do a demonstration for you, TEC will not give you any info on owners without prior permission.
Getting a sharp image at 300x is not easy for any scope, this is where the seeing gets in the way in most areas, if you live in the south you will have a little better chance of pushing your scope to higher powers, and also a sharp image means a differet thing to different folks.
Once again, try to locate one and decide for yourself.

Thanks,
Vahe
