One more post from the data set from this morning: another stereo/3D pair, but this time a little more deliberate.

  1. With a time separation more in line with the consensus of 10-12 minutes.
     
  2. Physically separated a little further apart, for easier viewing.

The interesting thing I find with the stereo pair approach is that our eyes and brains seem to ultimately perceive more detail and less noise, so I have presented the below at a slightly larger image scale than I normally would for a single image.

Thanks for looking!

 That's a very nice stereo image. I'd like to make a high resolution print. Would you post a copy for normal viewing in a Stereo viewer?

Nice one - BQ had some great success with these last year, they are especially good when a moon is transiting as the moon really comes out of the screen at you!

Oh that's very nice!  So is this using the rotation of Jupiter to simulate the separation of a giant pair of eyes to give the stereo effect?  I will have to try that.  In fact I might even have the images already from a few sessions.

in the photo on the right I see more details, more in focus?

Thanks Richard. I've only recently begun dabbling with the stereo technique however, so I'm not familiar with the tool or technique you're referring to - could you provide more info?

 

One other thing to note would be that I doubt the image scale of my telescope would support hi-res printing at any appreciable size. You'd be welcome to try though - let me know specifically what you'd need.

Thanks Andrew. That animation of BQ's is great ... will need to remember this next time a transit occurs, give it a go!

Purely down to seeing, it was improving as the session progressed. Which just goes to show how important it is for resolving fine details!
