I was a little unsure if this question fits here but it seemed the best place of the various boards. Is it possible to use TransX to approach the Sun? In MAJ Sun I tried going to View Encounter but no data shows. And there's no way to target the Sun as I guess that would require the MAJ to be the galactic centre!

Perhaps another MFD will do it, like IMFD, but I'm not very knowledgeable with it, and I don't really feel like trying to set up the trajectory without doing any proper planning in advance.

If you can afford brute force, you only need Orbit MFD (set REF=Sun) and burn enough propellant retrograde. The realistic way would be doing numerous slingshots, it isn't easy but can certainly be done. IMFD could do that kind of thing back in the days I remember.
