At 7:45 pm AEST time Thu 24/9 2020SW will be near the star HIP4511.
That is about 14 degrees above Mars and 1.4 deg from 20 Cet.

I put together a quick tutorial on how to get it into Stellarium for those using the desktop software. It should give you the RA/DEC at your chosen time too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVFX-w2TjYk

Thx Glen and Rohan much appreciated I got it in stellarium but having bug in stellarium whenever I try to add a new camera to Occular and tab down it crashes. It lets me add telescope and lenses but not ccd. So SkySafari is nicer to get a FoV for my dslr in and more portable.

Unfortunately we had solid cloud cover over this way last night so no chance of imaging it.
