Aurora in Stereo - Little Wall Lake, IA - Oct.21, 2001

Submitted by: Stan Richard at Thu Oct 31 23:05:01 2002 UTC

First position yourself approx.2-3 ft from your monitor, relax your eyes and stare at the line separating the images, slowly cross our eyes and you will see one vertical line going to the right and one to the left. Keep crossing your eyes until these lines meet up with the outside vertical lines and you should be able to lock in on the 3-D effect. There is actually no perspective difference in this stereo image so what you are seeing is a blending of the aurora from each image creating a 3-D effect in the aurora portion only. Good Luck and enjoy. Comments welcome: stan@nightskyevents.com Copyright(c)2001 Stan Richard - Events in the Night Sky www.nightskyevents.com






Aurora in stereo pair - Little Wall Lake, Iowa - Oct.21, 2001

Submitted by: Stan Richard at Wed Oct 30 19:15:01 2002 UTC

This one will test your eye coordination as it is a bit of a challenge because of the horizontal aspect but you CAN lock onto it. First position yourself approx. 2 feet from your monitor, relax your eyes and stare at the vertical line separating the images, then slowly cross your eyes and you will see two lines, one moving right and one to the left. Keep crossing your eyes until these lines meet up with the outside vertical lines and your eyes should then be able to lock onto the stereo image. When taking these shots I was actually comparing some different films with the aurora and had no intention of doing a stereo pair, I just happened to move the tripod to a different spot when I reloaded the camera. Jupiter is rising above the horizon at the right. Thanks to Dennis Anderson for reminding me I had this pair of images. Good Luck and enjoy!
