3-D Anaglyph Gallery

My sincere thanks to Maurice Collins for giving me the idea of creating my own 3-D anaglyphs of the Moon on his excellent Moon Science website.

Strictly speaking, these 3-D images are ‘cheating’ a little, as I don’t have enough lunar images yet to be able to create the required ‘stereo pairs’. Instead, I have used a single image and some free software to create a pseudo-stereo pair. The process I used was to import and calibrate one of my images in LTVT, saving this image as the ‘left’ image of the stereo pair. Then I changed the sub-observer longitude in LTVT so the image would be slightly rotated away from the viewer and moved it to the left, thus creating a ‘right’ image for the stereo pair. Once that was done, I used the free 3-D Anaglyph Maker software to create the anaglyph.

Update: For the third image (3-D Anaglyph Moon (Libration Zoomed)), instead of changing the sub-observer longtitude to create the right stereo image, I changed the libration in LTVT to a similar one on a different date and time (Feb 21, 2010 0242UT). I think that image gives the best result so far.

Update: For the fourth and fifth (full size) images, I used Photoshop Elements instead of LTVT to create the anaglyphs.

NOTE: You will need a pair of 3-D glasses to view these images in 3-D!
