The image doesn't seem to be in focus.

I think you are 100% right, even with live view I am having focus issues

Camera eyepiece magnifier?
Or magnified screen view?

Visually my 12.5mm Kelner eyepiece has a curved field, which I use to bring different parts of the Sun into best view by moving across the Sun, on my PST.
I haven't refocused in more than ten years.

Regards,
David

You will notice there is a sweet spot on the PST, that will allow you to see any surface detail.
When your camera is connected you have to tune the etalon until you can see detail.

Also. Focus on the edge of the Sun's disk. You will also need to reduce exposure times.

It is a case of practice with your setup. Eyepiece projection helps.
