3D Apollo Lunar Surface Images

Between 1969 and 1972, the pioneering Apollo explorers, who blazed the first trails to another world, personified American Exceptionalism at its finest. During this period, they took thousands of photographs in color and in black & white of rocks and boulders, mountains and craters, and breathtaking panoramic views of their surroundings. The Apollo lunar surface images are a scientific and historical treasure, scenes which should be seen by everyone through the eyes of the photographers. Fortunately, with the aid of modern computer software many of these images can be so viewed in 3D. A selection of such photos produced by the author from each of the six Apollo surface missions comprise Volume 1 of the book, Apollo on the Moon in Perspective: 3D Anaglyph Composites by Ronald A. Wells. This book has recently been published by CG Publishing, publisher of Apogee Books, Burlington, Ont. Canada (2018). Use the right scroll bar to move down to the photo ad for the book, or click on 19A in the left sidebar. The book has 152 pages covering all 6 landed missions with printed CMYK anaglyphs. It also contains a DVD with a longer PDF version of the book with more digital RGB photos along with mission folders containing both the RGB anaglyphs and also side-by-side equivalent jpegs for viewing with a Polaroid monitor or with such devices as Crystal Glasses. A set of red-cyan glasses is also included. The publisher has added a rare never-before-published anaglyph video that he personally filmed with a 3D movie camera of the Press Conference of the 30th Anniversary of Apollo 11 in 1999 featuring Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Gene Cernan, and Walt Cunningham.
