The bulk of planet observations was obtained in RI MAO and MAO NASU from 1961 to 1994. Plates from AI UAS were also used. Each plate of NAO was scanned 6 times, in other observatories — only once. All images are processed, most of them are identified and the equatorial coordinates of all objects were obtained. Positional accuracy of the reference stars has value of 0.04"-0.30". Standard deviation of the planets’ position is in the range 0.10-0.12 pixels, that corresponds, depending on the scale, from 0".08 to 0".26. The comparison of the new topocentric positions of the planets with JPL/HORIZONS ephemeris was made. Calculation of (O-C) values and their standard deviation is obtained.
