How view. Cross your eyes and stare at the image, you should now see 3 pictures, concentrate on the centre image until they fuse into on. May be a little difficult at first and not everyone can do it.
This can be done with any camera.
I would appreciate letting me know if you can see it,

Thank you Ice

Ice, the stereo pair works very well.

When I was a student I shared a house with a bloke who worked for what was then called National Mapping. He, Tony, used to bring home aerial images printed from large glass plates of places like Mount Everest and the Grand Canyon and our Great Dividing Range. The base length at times was up to 40-60% overlap, measured in kilometres not centimetres. We would sit on the couch with the photographs on the floor between our feet, staring at the images ... the summit of Everest was an inch from our nose (after time) with the valleys on the floor.

I didn't need to cross my eyes ... I've had lots of practice.

My dad tells me they did the same thing during the war. They took stereo pairs of Germany from a plane. They used stereo pairs and anaglyphs.
