I found this site that features photos of the moon taken through a TV-76 and Meade LX-90. Joe Carr is the photographer. It is interesting to compare the performance of the two scopes.

Thanks Aaron.

I'd like to submit however that the images showed nothing about the comparison of the performance of these two fine scopes. To compare, the imager would need to use his LPI to try to capture the image like it was done with the LX-90 ;-). Still the results would be: aperture wins ;-).
