Welcome to the Universe in 3-D: A Visual Tour by Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, J. Richard Gott, and Robert J. Vanderbei was released on April 19, 2022. The book features a journey into the universe through the most spectacular sights in astronomy in stereoscopic 3-D.

Welcome to the Universe in 3-D: A Visual Tour takes you on a grand tour of the observable universe, guiding you through the most spectacular sights in the cosmos in breathtaking 3-D. Presenting a rich array of stereoscopic color images, which can be viewed in 3-D using a special stereo viewer that folds easily out of the cover of the book, this book reveals your cosmic environment as you have never seen it before.

Astronomy is the story of how humankind’s perception of the two-dimensional dome of the sky evolved into a far deeper comprehension of an expanding three-dimensional cosmos. This book invites you to take part in this story by exploring the universe in depth, as revealed by cutting-edge astronomical research and observations. You will journey from the Moon through the solar system, out to exoplanets, distant nebulas, and galaxy clusters, until you finally reach the cosmic microwave background radiation (or CMB), the most distant light we can observe. The distances to these celestial wonders range from 1.3 light-seconds to 13.8 billion light-years. Along the way, the authors explain the fascinating features of what you are seeing, including how the 3-D images were made using the same technique that early astronomers devised to measure distances to objects in space.

The dramatic 3-D images in this one-of-a-kind book will astonish you, extending your vision out to the farthest reaches of the universe. You will never look up into the night sky the same way again.

Stereo Realist Vista-Stereo Viewer

Realist Stereo-Vista instructions

A conversation between Gary Dineen and a stereo colleague led to the mentioning of the rarely-encountered-in-the-wild David White Stereo Realist Vista-Stereo viewer (model 3012). "Say hello to this frankensteinish combination of microfiche reader and TDC Project or View," Dineen wrote. "It holds six realist format slides in a slide holder which is manually moved by hand, using the silver pointer/handle. It was a late model accessory (with a $695 list price) and was introduced along with the Realist Macro Stereo camera in the early '70s.

According to an article in Stereo World (March/April 1996), the initial projection for 150 units was reduced to less than 50 produced. If anyone else has one, knows of one, or has any other information, please share!
