I would prefer using the Moon to find the focal point, unless you want to set fire on a piece of paper :-)

Aim it at the sun, then place a piece of white paper at the focus point and measure where it comes to focus. Should be somewhere around 8" from the fully racked in focuser back.

I guess I could guesstimate the focal point by measuring 43” back from the front of the objective and then measuring how far it is from that point to the focuser barrel.
