Stereoscopic Cabbage White Butterfly eggs.

Recommended Posts

Here's a rather unique blast from the past. This is a microscope stereoscopic view of Cabbage White Butterfly eggs. Mag x20, single frame, top illumination using fibre-optic lamps. The stereo image was assembled by Dr. Brian May (the Queen guitarist) who is also a stereoscopy expert. You can view the image either by using Brian's OWL glasses, the prism glasses from the Widescreen Centre, or by the "cross-eyed" method.

What does this mean Prof? Is this like a 3D image if wearing special glasses?

Yes - sorry Ray - that's exactly what it is - a 3D image. You can with a little trial and error see it in 3D if you look at it on your screen from a couple of feet away and let your eyes "relax" which is what is meant by the "cross-eyed" method. So  you don't need special glasses, but they do make it a lot easier to see.

Very cool, certainly works when I go cross eyed from a few feet away.
