The article focuses on supernova remnant in Taurus from the Crab nebula called Simeis 147 which was discovered at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory. It notes that the Simeis 147 remained an extremely difficult target for imagers and visual observers. However, modern filters and wide field instruments made the images for the difficult visual object achievable.
