While I am sure Darren is not the first to do this, I would like to give him some credit for my inspiration to create this stereo pair for a 3D moon effect.  It also gave me a template to create my own 3D moon effect.  His recent post for Jupiter is attached here:  https://www.cloudyni...rate-this-time/

 

I remembered I had created an equal rectangular projection of the full moon just after the lunar eclipse on Jan 20, 2019.  Using Map to Globe I was able to create a couple of screenshots rotating the moon about 6 degrees.  Sorry for the presentation with the moon on its side, but that is how I was able to more readily control the rotation to be specific to 6 degrees.  I'll figure it out for better presentation in the future.  Please enjoy this first attempt.

Wow, very nice!

Yes, I'm far from the first person to do a stereo pair. But now I wonder why I haven't tried it before!

Can't be good for the eyes though lol.

Oh.. my eyes are still crossed... Once you get it in "focus" it's beautiful! How far apart in time the shots are?

Thanks for the likes and comments everyone!

It is from one photograph, but the rotation applied through the "Map to Globe" program is 6 degrees.  That is the near equivalent of 10 minutes of rotation on Jupiter.  The Map to Globe online program can be found here: https://www.maptoglobe.com/#

Very Cool!

I am going to try to print it out and try it in my vintage card stereo viewer.

Okay, here is a test of an area zoomed around Copernicus and Kepler.  The effect works somewhat, but not nearly as well as the whole moon and is much harder to hold the 3-d effect.

I think the zoomed in version would work better if there were shadows.  The full size Moon, however, is great.  Thanks for sharing.

Has anyone tried this by taking images from two different locations?  An HDR image of the crescent moon with background stars visible would be interesting, I'd bet.  

 

Please send me a note if you're interested in trying something like that...

Amazing! And in truth, nothing wrong with a side-on moon. GIves it a new feel.

I will actually try something similar to that.

Cool! Definitely needs shadows to help the eyes "lock in" the 3d effect. But great job on full moon!

The method still needs just a bit of improvement, but I think it is getting close to something pretty cool!

I printed them out and tried it in my 3d viewer, worked good!
