Even though I've got only one keeper so far, I've already got a tip that might be helpful for manually focusing the lens: Using gaffer's tape, I very lightly taped a wooden skewer hanging from the water drop dispenser's spout. The lens is focused on the skewer where it meets the water surface or is close to it. Gaffer's tape leaves no residue unless it's left in place for days and the skewer is so light that only a tiny piece of tape is needed. Worked like a charm!
