I think you will crack : 3D flight videos over the Moon

Recommended Posts


You liked the 3D images of this post :  https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/284803-a-new-presentation-of-lunar-pictures-in-3d/

I'm making movies using this technique and that of anaglyp on pictures.
I present you the first two : A flight around Alphonsus and over Vallis Alpes.

I hope you will tell me that you like it because it's work.

Clear skies.

I put you the two original pictures :

Absolutely marvellous. I was at a Mars themed talk by professor David Southwood last night at the local AS. He had some fly through videos playing which were produced with Stereo image data captured from one of ESA's orbiters. 

And you've done something comparable with the moon from a terrestrial telescope a quarter of a million miles away from the target. Remarkable.

      Quickmap has recently been updated and now has a feature that lets you fly around any crater on the Moon while you enjoy a 3D view of it.
      This it how it works:
      Go to http://quickmap.lroc.asu.edu
      Select the Lunar Globe 3D projection and a texture that works around the whole globe: 

      Find a place on the globe to view and start the 3D flight

      You should now see a 3D scene like this, spinning around the point where you clicked:

      To see the moving 3D scene you can use this link. It's a very long link, but it should get you there in one go:

      Just 700 images taken between the clouds to make my best image of this trio.
      A first version at 60% :

      This is the first time for this season that I have good conditions for a big Jupiter's image with the 625 mm and some details on Ganymede.
      Clear skies.

      Hello There is no possibility of imaging at the moment (since the end of December) so I put a little 3D film for an overflight on Copernicus with a landing on the edge to admire the landscape. The original image comes from LROC http://target.lroc.asu.edu/q3/ it was a test to see what it gave. Two versions : Normal 3D: https://youtu.be/TeL9F_fqgZU Anaglyph version: https://youtu.be/f4WjfklCsWQ Clear skies and good flight. Luc CATHALA.
