Hi Mr. J P Metsävainio !

I was glad to find your astronomy site as I was wandering through the blogosphere of Astronomy. Since I also share the astronomy field (I am an amateur astronomer from Sri Lanka), I could literally obtain a great knowledge from your pages. I appreciate the time and efforts that you have taken to build up the blog into such a higher standard.

I am happy to inform you that I also maintain an astronomy blog, especially dedicated to IYA 2009 at I update the periodic IYA 2009 and astronomy happenings in Sri Lanka in addition to providing visitors a worldwide scope on IYA 2009 and Astronomy news.

In order to provide my visitors more information and knowledge, I decided to connect with your valuable and resourceful blog Therefore I want to get your permission to put your link on my blog.

Meantime I would be obliged if you could put a link from your blog to my blog in return. This will also let me to have more audience at the same time.

Say, the Bubble Nebula looks great in parallel. How was that done?

Thanks Scott,

There is a general guidelines, how to greate spatial images from a 2D-material in a PDF. Title of the post says "NEAIC" and PDF is "3D-stereo Pair from a 2D-Astro image".

In this case I used litle different method. I divided the image by its content to different 2D-layers under PS. Then I reprojected them to 3D-surfaces under a 3D-modeling software.
After that, I can have easily two images with enough parallax between them to form a stereo effect.
If you are interested about this kind of stuf. you should look this animation I made some time ago from a Veil Nebula:

My original 2D-image of the Veil can be seen here:
