Abstract

The region of NGC 2467, placed in the "Puppis Window" of the third quadrant, contains a number of young open clusters and nebular entities reported at different distances. We present a new analysis of the eld of NGC2467 based on deep images, in the UBVRI filters, obtained with the 2.2-m MPG/ESO telescope at La Silla Observatory, Chile. We analyze the stellar content and establish new distances to the clusters. We suggest the presence of a population of young stellar objects, including the detection of HH-like features. Also, we discover tens of background galaxies seen through the galactic plane.
