CCD observations of the northern globular cluster M 92 were obtained in the PXYVS colors of the Vilnius photometric system. The results for 230 stars in an area centered on the cluster and for 178 stars in an area west of the cluster down to V = 17.0 mag are presented. After a brief outline of the data pathway from observations to reduction via IRAF and a discussion of the photometric errors, the [Fe/H] ratio of the globular cluster M 92 is determined by multicolor PXYVS Vilnius photometry.
