The good old Moon as a Stereo Pair

Unlike many Deep sky objects, the Moon can be seen with enough parallax to form a
real stereo pair. There is two ways to do it. First you take two pictures from other sides of earth
at the same time and there will be some minor parallax.
Secondly the libration of the Moon can be used for that, you just have to wait a longish time to
have a same phase of the Moon but with differen libration amount.
In fact, several stereo Moon images has be done by this way.
In above image, there is same method used, as with my DS images, to
create a pseudo parallax between images.
I shot this Full Moon image at 2005, more moon images from me can be seen here:
