Thanks to everyone for the feedback.  I also think Sam's shot is better than 
the one on APOD.
  As for my observing experience this morning (Saturday) from the local park, 
the planets were even lower than I was expecting -- had to look between a 
couple of trees and just over the roof of a house.  Could see Jupiter and 
Mercury naked-eye, but needed binoculars to make out Mars.  Didn't notice Beta 
Scorpii even with the binocs, probably because I didn't know exactly where to 
look.  I snapped a photo, but won't be developing the film for a while.
  Please let me know if you get any photos of Sunday morning's arrangement.

over" labels, Great job!
