Manual Focus with E-mount lenses

When in really low light or doing astro I need to manual focus the lens but it's kind of annoying since you never hit a stop for either end nor is there a visual display where the focus is. On m4/3 they you know where in the range the focal point is as they give you a visual on the screen. On my NEX-5n there is no visual so I generally end to turning infinity or closest focusing ranges for a second or two. Is there any way to get a focus scale on the NEX-5n for E-mount lenses or is this one of the things Sony didn't implement?
