Here’s a meh capture of Mars taken just a few minutes ago. With the moon in conjunction, star chart apps (time and location noted in the image below) give one a good idea where to look. The rest is just luck. Q 3.5 close-coupled to my iPhone 12 Pro at about 85x magnification. With the moon in the position shown in my field of view, Mars was centered.
