Context. The triple stellar system δ Vel system presents a significant infrared excess, whose ori gin is still being debated. A large infrared bow shock has been discovered using Spitzer/MIPS observations. Although it appears as a significant cont ributor to the measured IR excess, the possibility exists that a circumste llar IR excess is present around the stars of the system. Aims. The objective of the present VISIR and NACO observations is to identify whether one of the stars of theδ Vel…
