2008-02-21: Total Lunar Eclipse III

As a first draft result of the coordinated observation, I have produced an anaglyph showing a moment of the Lunar Eclipse in 3D.

The first picture was posted in Cielo Sur in answer to the coordinated observation by Leonardo Julio, Alejandro Tombolini and Adriana Fernández from Arenales y Agüero, Capital Federal, Argentina . It was captured with a Meade LX 90 telescope and an Olympus Evolt E-500 camera (provided by Silvia Smith). The second image was captured from Majadahonda (Madrid) by Manuel Castillo using a 9 cm/F10 Matsukov-Cassegrain Telescope and a Canon400D camera at 01:56 GMT. It was selected identifying the corresponding stereoscopic pair in a sequence covering all the Moon immersion in the Earth Shadow. Alignment and scaling was performed using conventional image processing techniques.
