Digiscoping with iPhone SE question

So I made a quick attempt using the Kowa iPhone 5 holder on my Kowa 883. I saw there was an image circle on my phone and used the zoom to eliminate it. Of course, the digital zoom almost immediately destroys an image with artifacts.

So when digiscoping with one's phone, do you leave the image circle alone and then crop in post in order to achieve the best results?

You can see some vignetting shadow in the image as well as the digital artifacts. Enlarging it reveals even more.

Interested in learning the best techniques for spotting scope digiscoping. Oh, I stabbed at the shutter rather than using headphones for the release.
