Sorry to hear your disappointment on the modded 40D Eric.

The problem seems to be with the modification though rather than the camera itself. Where did you get the mod 40D from ?

I know that at first the new features of the 40D may seem daunting but surly the basics are the same as the 350D for astro use.

As for live focusing, I love it, that's all I use on the 20Da and assume it's very similar for the 40D.

The big bonus would also be the included Canon control software that comes with the 40D, allowing you to set just about every parameter from the lappy.

Also if you use the RAW frames for processing you'll be able to rectify any colour imbalances later in PS etc I reckon.

Anyway hope it all works out for you.
