Interesting learning...
How to take good anaglyph images with a camera ?
The following are just a few of the many recommendations.
  • Keep the camera horizontal on a stand or wall. If walking to take the second picture, try to walk on a straight line.
    Or at least at the distance for the second picture shot, be sure to be aligned and horizontal with the first picture shot location.
  • If taking picture of a long horizontal object, such as a road, a canyon, an airplane or a boat, the 3 dimensional effect will be better if the object is aiming toward the camera (or going away).
    If the object is going horizontal from left to right on the picture the 3 dimensional effect will be minimum, perhaps unnoticeable.
  • With two cameras, hold them together on a stand.
  • With one or two cameras, always have them in the same plan, aligned together.

Both camera lenses have to be identical !
The following assume, the user will have one camera only.
However part of the text apply to one or two cameras technique.

  • To maximaize deepness in a picture, take advantage of objects closer as well as further away.
    The effect will be more noticeable and enjoyable.

  • To notice 3 dimensional effect on a mountain range far away with not much near by, it is sometimes necessary to take two pictures with a greater distance between them. A 100 m or about 100 yard walk is not uncommun.
    However not every location allow it, from the top of the Eiffel tower, you can look all around, walking 100 m or 100 yard is not a realistic possibility.

I am simply a Linux enthusiast with an interest in science.

I like to build hardware projects and connect them to computers, to do data acquisitions and other things. I also like to make telescopes or make existing telescopes more convenient to use.

This page will hopefully help me to learn something. I am happy if I can share it with the reader.

I belong to the following astronomy societies: RAS. ASOD and linuxastronomy.org, which is a virtual group of linux enthusiast, experimenting with astronomy.
