How to get NEX7 to infinity focus at night?

I was trying to do some star photography the other night and ran into an issue.. how do I get the camera to focus?

All of my sony emount lenses have "digital focus" (i.e. you can keep spinning the focal ring forever) so there is no "mechanical" way to know where the focus is set (and looking in the viewfinder at stars is useless).

Tips? Suggestions? ...am I missing something obvious?

thanks in advance

Sony Alpha NEX-7
