A deep photometric analysis in the open star cluster NGC 1883 has been presented here and added to the work of Carraro et al. (2003), which is the only previous work introduced for this cluster. The radius and metallicity have been re-estimated in the present work. In addition, new parameters, namely luminosity function, mass function, total mass, mass segregation and the relaxation time of the cluster NGC 1883 have been estimated here for the first time.
