Much safer to project on to a screen and then photograph the screen. If you make sure you have a clean screen and a decent depth of field (higher f ratio) you can get a decent image even though you will not be perfectly on axis. You can later rescale the image as necessary to restore the Suns shape to circular. I used this approach very successfully in 2004.Why take risks when theres no need to? You only get one set of eyes.
