30 minutes exposure on Fuji Super HG V 400 film. 50mm f/2.8 Canon lens.

Cancer is a fairly large, but faint constellation between Gemini and Leo. Its chief claim to fame is that it is home to the large open cluster M44, visible a little below centre in this photograph. However there are a number of interesting objects in Cancer apart from M44, and the constellation well repays time spent here with a telescope. There are a number of faint galaxies, a good number of interesting double stars, and the interesting open cluster M67, indicated in the photograph by the circle.

On the right-hand edge of the photograph are the bright stars Castor and Pollux, while to the upper left of the image are the brightest stars of the faint constellation Leo Minor.
