Can one make an object not be rendered?

I have a small plane in my scene that is essentially just a place marker – it helps me position other objects correctly. Is there any way I can set this plane so that it shows up in the 3D view but is completely ignored/invisible when the scene is rendered?

go to the outliner and find your objects then on the righ
there is a toggle button where you can make it not renderable !

hope it helps

Ah, thanks a lot!
