3D moon pictures

Post by Freke1 »

This site: http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html has a lot of pictures from Apollo 11 (first man on the moon) and all the other missions.
There's actually a anaglyph 3D closeup picture of a footprint (AS12-57-8448.jpg).

The astronauts were shooting a lot of pictures so with a little luck You can find 2 to make a 3D photo.
I made some (16) and uploaded them:

Image Image Image Image Image

but there are many many pictures to go through. Lets make some 3D photos from the moon! Lez doit!
Post here if You make some.
Also great wallpapers!

For downloads use the corrected ones in AWoods posts a few posts down and here: http://www.3d.wep.dk/3D_NASA_pictures.html

the first image has very nice 3d but the other ones not so much. Still amazing, thanks :)

Thanks :D
the problem is the astronauts didn't take 3D photos so it's pure luck if it (kind of) works.

Two points:
1. It is my understanding that the Apollo Astronaughts did shoot 3D photos intentionally - but they didn't have a dedicated 3D camera, so they used their regular 2D camera to shoot two images sequentially, moving the camera horizontally a short distance between shots. Often called the "cha-cha" method, or sequential stereo.
2. Although you've done a fairly good job of matching the image pairs together, there are still a lot of misalignments in the images. I highly recommend using "Stereo Photo Maker" to automatically register the two images (removing a wide range of distortions from the image pair - magnificant differences, horizontal and vertical translation, skew and tilt, radial distortion, etc). Make sure you have the "Auto-Pano SIFT" option installed and use "auto alignment" under the "adjustment" menu. "Stereo Photo Maker" is here: http://stereo.jpn.org/ (and it's FREE!)

I've uploaded a corrected version of the first 3D sample you gave here:

Cheers,
Andrew.

Here's corrected versions of all four stereo-pairs - see if you can see the difference.

http://www.3dmovielist.com/apollo2b.jpg
http://www.3dmovielist.com/apollo3b.jpg
http://www.3dmovielist.com/apollo5b.jpg

The second image also had a lot of brightness difference between the two shots which Stereo Photo Maker (SPM) is also able to correct.

In 3D, don't forget the mantra: ALIGNMENT ALIGNMENT ALIGNMENT! ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew.

OK, maybe I'm getting a bit obsessive now, but SPM was also able to extract the anaglyph image (fourth image in Freke1's original post) into separate left and right pairs and do an auto-alignment. The result is has much better alignment than the original, particularly the front foot of the tripod device.

Here as a cross-eye stereo-pair:

thank you AWoods - those look much better, especially liked the one with the american flag (all be it with all the nuances of todays world). Still, very nice image, definitely one for my showcase gallery

That's great. I'm still a n00B with StereoPhoto Maker :D. Thanks for the help and info, Andrew.
Maybe You can finetune some more later?
The moon mission photos are just amazing, I think. I wonder why NASA hasn't released them in 3D?
Not many ppl have seen the moon in 3D - only the astronuats and us :D

Please do post more links to the Apollo 3D pairs when you find them.

I paired and uploaded some possible 3D pairs: http://www.3d.wep.dk/MIS/possible3Dpairs.rar
These are the standard/low res versions as before.

It might be a good idea to include the Apollo mission number in the name (AS12 etc.) as in the originals and 3D or S3D don't You think?
More to come - looking forward to the result 8)

Land on the moon - in person

Post by budda »

Have you actually tried to land on the moon in Apollo 11, just like Neil Armstrong did .... but in 3d.

Download the free Eagle Lander 3D simulation at http://eaglelander3d.com/

I have played this game many times in 3d with the Emagin Z800 HMD, and its a real blast. The closest any of us will get to experiencing this historic event.

Real lunar landscapes and sound from the mission is used as well.

Happy land-dings :lol:

Here are some 3D images (crosseyed) You don't see every day:

10 years elapsed. :shock:
Time to evolve. :)
What about attempting to build 3d models from stereo pairs?
I'm trying, but still with no great luck.

Metod is scalled "Structure From Motion" or "Stereophotogrammetry".

Available free 3d stereophotogrammetry programs:
Insight 3d
3DF Zephyr Free
Regard 3d
COLMAP
VSFM (Visual Structure From Motion)

Something is already available on 3d sharing site sketchfab.com

First step
Apollo 15
Apollo 17
Hole


Please note that 3d models coming from stereo pairs are better enjoyed rotated up-down rather than right-left.

Some great stereo experiments in the first part of this thread. I'm here ten years later and can no longer see most of the shots. Booo to the people who used lame sharing services that are now dead to host their improved pictures. Don't use lame services, please.

This is from a recent book by Brian May of Queen and astrophysics fame. The book is absolutely terrific with a number of killer 3D shots.
