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.
