We describe a large database of photographic observations of Solar System bodies obtained at the Engelhadt Astronomical Observatory (EnAO). We give a brief description of the methods of observations and the accuracy of their reduction with the PPM and Tycho-2 catalogues. The photographic positions of the major planets, except Jupiter, are in the system of the Tycho-2 catalogue and their comparison with DE200 ephemeris coordinates are given.
