Each of plates 6 & 7 are of Bennett, taken mid-April 1970.  Can´t be more accurate without better astrometry.

Incidentally, http://www.icq.eps.harvard.edu/bortle.html is an invaluable resource.  I use Norton’s 2000 to convert Bortle’s constellation names into approximate RA/Dec for comparing with plate solutions given by Lars.
