Flying around Copernicus


This video is the result of processing of 4 lunar images (1, 2, 3, 4) taken at different libration using a Santel 360mm telescope:

Due to the fact that on different dates Copernicus was observed at slightly different angles, we managed to restore the spatial information about the object and create a digital model of the relief. The task was not entirely trivial, because unlike the spacecraft survey, we were severely limited in the angles of the object being shot. In addition, although we tried to use images with close phases, the slightly different position of the shadows still introduced additional difficulties. Nevertheless, by trial and error, we managed to achieve a certain result.

In addition to the video, we also offer several anaglyphs (red-blue glasses are required for viewing ):
