You can make a great sun just using two nulls, and HV. Set one null for surface, then the other for volume then use one of the fire presets, scale the fire HV until you get some nice prominences and flares. Play with one of the lava presets for the sun's surface.

you can check this thread over at spinquad, and my(phamarus)
fifth post over there theres some images, and descriptions on how that was done

simple surface procedurals on a sphere and hypervoxels sprites in the background for flares.

I might even have some cooler ehh..hotter sunflares coming up later with mucho particles for the flares.
