What I tend to do is... as soon as I get the scoop active message, I slow right down and then gradually turn away from the star until I have my back to it.

Although slowing down means you don't scoop fuel as quickly, so you spend more time heating up.

Belly-surfing the sun - that's how I do it. Soon as it starts tanking, I put the crosshairs on the rim.
