I'm assuming you aren't trying to focus on the sky then? Maybe bring a flashlight and shine it on what you are trying to focus on.

I used a flashlight to focus on the wall on the side of the picture but how do you focus on the sky? infinity?

Yup.

What are you trying to shoot? Star trails?

This is an 8 minute exposure I did.b Nikon D5000, 18-55mm f/3.5, ISO 200. I manual focus all of my night shots since all of my lenses seem to focus past infinity for shots of stars. For longer exposures, you'll get a lot of noise in the image. The colder it is, the longer the exposure you can have, or at least that is what I have found. This shot was taken when it was below freezing.

Ive only got a few with stars but mine are all rather noisy (ISO12800 / ISO6400 normally) as anything > 10 seconds you get trails.....
Havent looked into stacking things yet - how you do yours ?
