I find the live view excellent for focussing. I don't use the LCD on the camera but the very enlarged frame on the remote control software that comes with the camera. Just aim at a bright star near where you are going to image. I have been using gamma Cru in the south. I use the diffraction spikes from the spider as the focussing guide and focus until they are 1 sharp line.
Simple and effective.
Keep at it it Eric
