Abstract: Photographic photometry of about 900 stars down to V = 17 mag has been carried out in the region of the open cluster NGC 2301. The cluster region seems to be severely contaminated by field stars. Statistical criteria yield only 96 + or - 17 cluster members. Stars fainter than about 15 mag are found to be absent among cluster members. Star counts indicate a diameter of about 20 arcmin. The data suggest mass segregation in the cluster
