I have just an idea, and maybe one of you guys can make it real or maybe someone already did?
I just want want to make a photo of the night star sky in 3D (usual stereo-pair). But since stars are located really far away usual few centimeters distance between left and right eye will not produce any of 3D effect. So I propose to try few million kilometers distance
We just need to make 2 photos of same area of the night sky but with time difference in 6 mounts.
Distance to the nearest star is about 39,900,000 Million Km and distance between right and left camera positions (in case of 6 months) is about 300 Million Km. Most likely there will be very tiny 3D effect in such stereo image but I think it still worth to try. 3D effect should be stronger with longer lens (stronger zoom)
BTW I am sure some hardcore astrographers already have tons of images of the night sky taken in different times of the year and it should be possible to assemble stereo-pair from what they have already without waiting for 6 months.
I hope my post will inspire someone
