NGC 7011 is most likely the V-shaped group of about 15 stars 2-3 arcmin northwest of JH's position. While he gives no more information than a position and the brief non-description, "A cluster. No further description," the group is very eye-catching on the DSS. There are a few other stars scattered around it that might add to its "eye appeal" during a sweep. Wolfgang also picked this same group when he looked at the field.
So, I've adopted the identification.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NO CL DC.
