Is it possible to get a stereoscopic image of astronomical objects? By taking 
two pictures of an object here on Earth at slightly different angles you can use 
a stereoscope to view a 3-D image. If you took a picture of an object in space 
one in winter the other in summer when the Earth is at a different angle could 
you achieve the same effect? I assume the distance is too far since I have never 
seen this done anywhere before. I am just a curious amateur astrophotographer 
wondering about a new project to try. Thanks.
