The results of astrometric and photometric investigations of the poorly studied open cluster NGC $\,$1513 are presented. The proper motions of 333 stars with a root-mean-square error of $1.9\;{\rm mas\,yr^{-1}}$ were obtained by means of the automated measuring complex "Fantasy". Eight astrometric plates covering the time interval of 101 years were measured and a total of 141 astrometric cluster members identified. BV CCD-photometry was obtained for stars in an area $17\arcmin\times 17\arcmin$ centered on the cluster. Altogether 33 stars were considered to be cluster members with high reliability by two criteria. The estimated age of NGC 1513 is $2.54\times 10^8\,$ years.

Key words: open clusters and associations: general -- open clusters and associations: individual: NGC 1513
