The Wild Duck Cluster (also known as Messier 11 or NGC 6705 ) is a 5.8 like bright cluster with an angular extent of 14 ' in the constellation sign.

He was discovered in 1681 by Gottfried Kirch and added to its list in 1764 by Charles Messier. He is one of the most compact of the open star clusters and is yet to find with binoculars on the northern edge of a large star cloud of the Milky Way.
