I noticed the "sweet spot" effect too. You can center the sun in the FOV and by using the tuning ring you can do the same thing. I used to see the same effect with my Daystar .7A system. So when I saw it in the PST, I wasn't alarmed. As to the sun being centered in the solfinder, mine isn't quite centered either but it's reasonably close. I guess you should ask Coronado about it.
