I have included file sizes in the image links.  Please take a moment to check these sizes before you begin downloading images for viewing.  Several of the JPS files are very large and will be painful to download over a modem link.

The images are presented in cross-eye and anaglyph format.  If you prefer a different format or size, please give the Stereoscope applet a try.

Viewable with any browser
I strive for browser independence.  Please let me know if you experience problems with these pages.

Many of these pages use a Java Stereoscope applet by

. It made a Java convert out of me and I highly recommend it.

With the chip on the right in place, it is time to address the chip on the left.  

I start by dropping it upside-down on the left aperture and then affix two wess-tab handles to opposite corners of the chip.  Each "handle" is one wess-tab bent into an "L" shape.  They will serve two purposes:

  1. To permit me to slide and rotate the chip without touching it
  2. To provide a means of quickly tacking the chip into place when it is in the correct position

Historical note:  Before settling on the wess-tab handle method, I had tried wearing gloves and moving the chip by hand.  But when wearing gloves, I couldn't get a grip on the film to accurately position it.  I also tried moving the film with tweezers but the unsecured film would be moved before I could secure it with tape. 


TIM25934.JPG (80535 bytes)With the wess-tab handles in place, I can swing the lens board back over the mount and align the chip.  When the images are aligned to my satisfaction, I press firmly on the clear acrylic covering the film (to hold it all in place) and press the wess-tab handles down onto the mount.  All of this  process can be performed while viewing the slide through the lenses. 

It is then a simple matter to tilt the lens board back again and apply a strip of tape to secure the film chip to the mount.  Next
