We present the results of two photometric campaigns and a VLT multi-epoch radial velocity survey toward the open cluster NGC 6253. We complement our analysis with photometric, proper motion, and radial velocity data available from previous studies of this cluster, and analyze three planetary candidates found in the field of NGC 6253. Description: We derived homogeneous radial velocity measurements for stars located at the turn-off, sub-giant, red-giant branch, red-clump, and blue straggler regions of the cluster. We also analyzed a comparison sample of surrounding field stars. Spectra were obtained with the UVES and GIRAFFE spectrographs at the VLT during three epochs in August 2008. The photometric data that appear in this work are based on two major photometric campaigns conducted at the 2.2m La Silla Telescope in 2004 and 2009 respectively. The 2004 photometric campaign was conducted during June 2004 (program ID:073.C-0227[A]). In April 2009, we used the 2.2m Telescope in La Silla for 14 consecutive nights between 1-14 April during Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics reserved time (program ID:083.A-9001[A]). Only part of the time was allocated to NGC 6253 observations The spectroscopic observations were obtained using the FLAMES facility at the UT2 (Kueyen telescope), in Paranal, Chile. The data were obtained during three nights between August 17, 2008 and August 25, 2008. File Summary:

Note (1): Star 30341 is a very likely field star sharing the same proper motion of cluster members, as discussed in Sect. 5. Note (2): The R band magnitude for star 45410 and the B-V color of star 45368 are taken from Bragaglia et al. (1997MNRAS.284..477B, see text). Note (3): Classification code as follows: MS = main sequence SGB = subgiant branch RGB = red-giant branch RC = red clump BSS = blue straggler RSCVn = RS Canum Venaticorum variable EW = contact binary EA = Algol variable, detached system LON = Long period variable >10days RO1 = rotational variable, see De Marchi et al., 2010 (Cat.
