Hi Chris,
Welcome to the club! ;-) A Noctilux is probably the toughest lens to hit it
right on focus mark everytime!  Even after many years of using one I still
loose some due to focusing.

Or shutter speeds and wide open, "Like f 1.0 at 1/8th with ASA 3200! Now
that's available darkness! :-)

To get it right everytime takes an enormous amount of practice and shooting
experience. And even then you are going to loose some.  I think the biggest
secret is that you take your time and focus very carefully
