What magnification needed for solar viewing?

Same as lunar. 0.5 degrees for full view.

Exactly! As the Sun & Moon are able to block each other out, as shown by a total eclipse, the same magnification of the Moon will have about the same effect on the Sun. Just be certain you have a good solar-filter in place. The damage to the eye from even a glimpse of the Sun through a scope - without a good filter - happens in a micro-second. And doesn't go away.

Clear Skies,

Dave
