Abstract

We present a method of converting moving pictures captured by a single high-definition television camera mounted on the Japanese lunar orbiter Kaguya (Selenological and Engineering Explorer, SELENE) into stereoscopic images. As objects in the moving pictures look as if they are moving vertically, vertical disparity is caused by the time offset of the sequence. The vertical disparity is converted into horizontal disparity by rotating the images by 90 degs. We developed models of the capture and display systems, and geometrically and numerically derived convergence points of observers' eyes. We confirmed that observers could perceive a stereoscopic effect with binocular parallax for the lunar surface at distances of several hundreds of kilometers.
