NEX 7 will definitely keep hunting for focus. The best way is to focus on moon manually using 7x and/or 14x zoom function and then lock your focus. Just tell me whether you see stars in evf or not when you get a chance to do this.

Yeah, except that the best viewing for astrophotos is when the moon is not out. Might be hard to find a bright enough object far away to focus on, when out somewhere very dark where the best pictures can be gotten. I'm hoping that in those conditions at least some stars or a planet will be so bright that I can see them on the LCD screen or viewfinder.
