Struggling with an ASI224MC

Dear all, 

I have Stellarmate OS on a RPi 4, connected to a NexStar 6SE and an ASI224MC, and I access both via VNC and the iOS app.
I am feeling a bit stupid as I cannot find how to focus the image on the camera. I take a preview pic and I can only see some blurry lights. Is there a "live" view of the camera that I can use to focus the image before taking a pic?

In Ekos under the capture module, you can try "Live Video" it may or may not work with your camera.

In the focus module, set live framing (button right next to the Autofocus/Stop button).

Select 1s for luminance imaging at 60% max gain. That should get you close to optimal focus quickly.
