Solar imaging through Lunt 35

Geez, I hope I'm not spamming the board here - just really happy with my new solar scope.

Anyway, looking through some of the solar images, I can see there's a bit of an issue getting focus when using these little scopes like the PST or Lunt for imaging.

Has anyone tried one of the little cameras with the whole body the width of an eyepiece like this one?

Would love to hear anyone's experience.

I've not tried one but I think I can tell, the normal getting to focus problem we often have in the 40mm PST (I can't speak for the LUNT 35) would be utterly eliminated with one of these! In fact you might get the reverse problem, but adding in a small extension tube is a better option if you have to IMO.
