If offsetting an entire field (right or left) in relation to the opposite field worked and produced noticable 3D/depth perception, then I'd have done this with binoviewers years ago. It does not have any effect on targets at infinity focus. Its a wash.
When I got serious about doing the 3D, i brought two binoviewers to a local gathering. One was aligned dead on in verticle and horizontal. The other dead on in vertcle, offset in horizontal. I did a blind test on the observers. I asked them to view an open cluster with each unit. Did they notice anything different? "No" .....finally, Did they see any enhanced sense of 3D? "No". Dang. My job would have been easy had it worked. I have been asked rarely by a very few if I offset my binoviewers in horizontal alignment. I do not.
Certainly, binocular objectices set at wider angles from one another increase the level of depth perception but only for viewing objects inside of infinity focus. As The distance between objectives increases, the distance where depth perception is experienced increases. But this stops at relatively close terrestrial distances and again, the view becomes flat betond that.
As far as night sky viewing goes, my array is reproducing the exact experience of everyday depth perception. The optical/neurological experiences of the two are identical.
Starlight in small areas of the field pass through either the original unit field, or through various panels that displace those field areas right, left, more, less. The affect is that instant immediate depth perception kicks in! The patent pending array only needs to be in one eyepiece. The optics are finely figured at lambda 10 and dielectric coated and cemented using a proprietary method.
Amazingly, in the LOA21 Eyepieces, rotating the eyepiece 180 degrees reverses distances instantly. Whatever appeared closest (center of the field) now appears furthest. This is because the direction of deplacement is reversed and is interpreted by the brain to be closer or further. Amazing! The array is attached to one eyepiece when used in a binoviewer. The array is part of The Space Walker 3D Binocular so this feature is absent. But in the LOA eyepiece, my instructions are taylored to keeping the eyepiece with the array in the right side. If it us placed in the ledt side of the binoviewer, the distances again are flipped! Think of your nose as center. Shift one object in a dual field merge to outside, it appears forward in relation to non shifted objects in merged dual field. Move it inward, it appears more distant. The mind is fascinating!
