An "irregular" planetary lies in Taurus, near the border of Perseus. The first peculiarity is the bright central star -- brighter, in fact, than the nebula around it, making the bebula itself somewhat difficult to see. Once found, NDC-1514 appears as an irregular 11th magnitude haze surrounding a 9.7 magnitude star. Additional stars are found on either side of the nebula.
