image from Jeffrey Ambroziak
The Wired Science website just featuredthis stereo image of the Tycho to Pitatus region of the Moon. Jeffrey Ambroziak created the 3-D image from LRO digital terrain data by constructing red and blue anaglyph images from two slightly different perspectives. He and his father had patented a new technique to create stereo images that work when viewed from nearly any angle or distance. As I have mentioned before, I can't see stereo so get out your red-blue glasses and send me your comments on how it works. Is it better than LRO anaglyph images by Maurice Collins and others?
