The skies at La Palma were not not so good at all that night. It was comparable to my rural observing site in the Netherlands. I did not check the naked eye limiting magnitude, but I guess is was only about 6.2-6.5. If you have the possibility to observe under such skies, Palomar 11 should definitely be visible in a 15" telescope. Make shure you have a good finder chart, you'll only see it if you know exactly were to look!
I have unsuccessfully searched for this one with a 10 and a 15-inch under skies not nearly as good as those at La Palma.
