5. Conclusions

The open cluster NGC 2422 has been established as a relatively well-populated young cluster tex2html_wrap_inline1291 pc away, with a mean reddening E(b-y) of tex2html_wrap_inline1295 and an age of tex2html_wrap_inline1297 yrs. The majority of the stars measured proved to be early type stars although several stars belonging to the cluster were determined to be A and F stars; hence they are candidates to be monitored in order to determine which of them belongs to the Delta Scuti group. No binaries nor chemically peculiar stars were found and no traces of any blue stragglers were discovered. 36 member stars were fixed as belonging to the cluster.
