Résumé

Relative proper motions and photographic magnitudes and colours have been determined for stars brighter than B ~ 16 which lie within ${12}^{\prime}$ of the open cluster NGC 2420. These are used to obtain a colour–magnitude diagram consisting almost entirely of cluster members. This diagram is compared with those of other clusters, and it appears that NGC 2420 is certainly more than 109 years old. However, there are some unusual features which may indicate a chemical composition intermediate between those typical of open and globular clusters. The absolute proper motion of the cluster is small.
