sometimes trial and error

First, it helps if you somehow mark the infinity position in the daytime so you can feel where it is at night.  You can also use a penlight to look at the lens at night.  Or glow from cellphone.

Either way, you probably want to at least do a trial and error check of your focus.  Just pixel peep at 100%.  Tedious, but I've been there, done that.  (Last summer with comet Neowise for one.)
