Astrophotography with Electronic focus lenses and dedicated astro camera

I am a Sony shooter but this could apply to all brands or lenses that use electronic focusing

I have several lenses that I would like to be able to use for astrophotography but unfortunately all of them are electronic focusing so no Manual focusing without a power source ie a camera body

I have several dedicated cooled astrophotography cameras and would like to be able to use with some of these lenses

but with no way to even manually focus them without a the mirrorless camera attached getting precise focus is let just say a challenge to say the least

putting it out there if anyone has a way to be able to get proper focus using a dedicated astro camera and electronic focusing lenses
