Your lens surely has distance marks on it that will show you the distance at which the lens is focussed. Turn the ring to the minimum focus distance -- the mark will tell you how far you need to be from the subject.

An unsharpened pencil is flat on the end, so you can stand it up on a flat surface. Or tape it to an object that will stand by itself, like a small drinking glass. Or sharpen it and jam the point into a rubber eraser, ball of clay, blueberry muffin... This is not a difficult problem to solve.

comment How to nail focus for DSLR astrophotography?
Just to state the obvious, photographing the sun without an appropriate filter is a very poor plan.

Agree, @mattdm. I don't know if there were cameras before Leica that had a similar design, but Leica usually gets the credit for that look.

comment Large DOF in low light for portrait in front of a landscape?
@null I think the point was that using existing light to make a single exposure with small aperture would require the subject to stand impossibly still.
