Narrowly Escaping Cancer (Unfortunately)

I was out last night to try to get the Constellation Cancer.  It’s a bugger to aim blind and the sky was not great so I missed high.  The closest I got was what’s below.  The circled stars are Zubanah(Mag 4) and Asellus Borealis(mag 5) in Cancer. The green marks on the right are Castor and Pollux in Gemini and on the left are Regulus and Algieba in Leo.  Probably one of the stars between Zubanah and Gemini is 18-Cnc but I’m not sure.  Kind of pathetic but it’s all an education.  The lower image is my reference from Stellarium.19-04-18 Just Missed Cancer 1009
