Hi again

Suggestions - aligning the camera / lens package without looking thru the lens at the sun

presumptions - camera is on sturdy tripod with pan & tilt / ball swivel head attached

You can stand on the lens side of the assembly and via shadows point the whole lot towards the sun. When it is on target, the camera will project a tiny image of the sun from the viewfinder onto a piece of paper your assistant is holding an inch or so away from the viewfinder. Then attach the solar ND filter and take a shot

Hope this helps
