Never build RC timers with electrolytic capacitors... at least if you want repeatability.

Now that you're forced to have one, choose least leaky capacitors. I'd say you should definitely use 100V cap there, using a 50V cap there is kind of worrisome especially with that R6 there; 100V caps hopefully are less leaky which helps even more.
