I've done stereo photos of close objects or scenes, but distant landscapes always ended up looking flat. So, I tried a few stereo landscape shots where I separated the shots by twenty feet or more, to get good depth with distant scenes. This is Colorado National Park, near Grand Junction, CO.

To see it in 3D: fix your gaze on one spot in either left or right image. Slowly cross your eyes until the spot merges with its corresponding spot on the other side. The two images should then lock together in focus, and you can look around the image in 3D. If you have trouble getting the images to align properly, try tilting your head. If you're used to the "Magic Eye" technique, you'll need to reverse the images left to right.

These are very cool. I actually found this stereoscope in a thrift store last month and have printed out some old late 19th century/early 20th century photos to try it out.

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.
