Spirit's first stereo images

(Note: newer images and info are available on the parent page.)

* All of these anaglyphs have been enhanced somewhat since when they were first posted.

All images were taken from NASA's site at http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/all/spirit.html on 4 January 2004. I found that NASA had linked to them individually from thumbnails, but not made them available stereoscopically. What I did was to arrange them for stereoscopic viewing and to make the anaglyphs. The larger anaglyphs I made by hand (using the Gimp). I made them a little bit bigger, adjusted the skew to make them converge more easily, brightened some (since you're looking at them through shades), and sharpened them a little. The small anaglyphs were made with this simple script. They're not adjusted for skew, so they may make you a bit cross-eyed. (You'll see what I mean.) But I'll have all handmade soon.

Note that the pictures below are from the navigation cameras, not the high-res color panoramic cameras. The smaller images really work best on most monitors using either cross-eyed or parallel methods, if you can do that, instead of as anaglyphs. The last image is too large for that but works pretty well as an anaglyph. Hold onto those red-cyan glasses for the hi-res pictures to come, though.
