The open cluster NGC 2422 has been established as a relatively well-populated young cluster pc away, with a mean reddening E(b-y) of and an age of 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.
