A strange night. The forecast called for overcast at sunset, but it was completely clear and calm. But when I went out to shoot Jupiter an hour later, the seeing was visibly diminished from sunset. And Jupiter looked quite green on the screen—in spite of the AWB setting. I got three captures before the seeing collapsed entirely; the first two made for a nice stereo pair:

Once I stopped, I noticed Venus was varying significantly in brightness down by the horizon. It looked like just a single cloud was billowing across it. By the time I went out to tear down, the cloud bank had finally arrived.

Excellent to hear, Paul! My household is split between cross-eye preference and wide-eye preference tribes. As a member of the cross-eye contingent, it's downright unsettling to watch my wife and her acolytes do the wide-eye pair. drool.gifgottahurt.gif 

 

For wide-eye to work for me, I have to be about 10 cm from the screen! And then all I see is pixels! crazyeyes.gif

I got the third stack to give up its secrets. So I was able to make an animated toggle of two stereo pairs in a 24-bit APNG:
