Hello All
I have a Meade 8x50 guidescope modified to achieve focus using a LPI camera on a 8" LX200GPS. I have the latest version of Envisage 7.05 on my XP Pro laptop and am able to take pictures during the daytime thru this setup.  I now wish to use this in an attempt to autoguide with it however the new version of Envisage does not appear to have a selection for "Autoguider" and the manual for Envisage does not seem to match the new 7.05 version. 

Is there a link for the new 7.05 Envisage manual?
Will Envisage 7.05 autoguide with a LPI?
Using 7.05 and LPI is there a way to autoguide without taking pictures or does it only work as an autoguider while it is taking pictures?  ???

Any help explaining this would help greatly. I realize the DSI camera would be a better choice but I am trying to use what I have since I did have an extra Finder and LPI camera.
