    Default M11 - Open Cluster in Scutum



    M11 - Open Cluster in Scutum

    M11 (NGC 6705) is one the richest open clusters - it is said that an
    astronomer at the centre of M11 would see hundreds of first magnitude
    stars. The age of the cluster has been estimated at anything between
    220 and 500 million years.
