Plate solving NGC 346

I took an image of NGC 346, inside the Small Magellanic Cloud. Admittedly it's not the best quality in the world. I mean… here it is: https://www.astrobin.com/lnw4py/

Still, wondering what settings to use in the plate solve settings to make it work? The automated one doesn't seem to work, and I tried some custom settings but never done that before so not sure if I'm doing it right. Would love to learn a bit better how to figure out those numbers it's asking for.

I tried with:
units: width in degrees
min field: 0.75
max field: 0.95
RA: 15
dec: -72.15
radius: 3
