M1 – supernova remnant in Taurus constellation. It is quite easy to observe it on the dark sky through the 8 inch telescope or “stronger”. Hovever if you want to see details inside of this object you will need “half meter piece of glass” or more.
In 8” we can observe only small, circle shape mist.

Clear sky
