My photo of the five bright planets is on page VII of the "Sky Guide 2009" 
insert.  Once again, the "Astronomy" photo editors got carried with the 
cropping -- they came very close to cutting off Jupiter!  And the photo is 
printed so small, you can't really see Mercury.  Here's the full-frame photo on 
my web site, with the planets labeled:

On page 85 there's a photo of spiral galaxy NGC 5371 by Adam Block.  Here's the 
image on the web:

Also on page 85 there's a photo of globular cluster NGC 6712 and planetary 
nebula IC 1295 by Chris Schur.  Here's the photo on Chris' web site:
