list of southern hemisphere mag four stars

het all, I am looking to finally get my robofocus/focusmax up and running in the FSQ106N. Currently at work trying to find any mag four stars for focusing on stellarium on my phone without success. Any names of stars preferably for me in the high West/North or North East? at a stretch in the high South also ?
Would appreciate a bit of a help!

I think there's a way in Stellarium to limit the magnitude of the stars shown? If you did that, you just go to the appropriate area and pick something then, right?

What’s your imaging capture software of choice? Eg, I use Maxim DL and just search in the catalogue part of the software for stars in that range then sort by RA to pick one close to where my scope is pointing.
