[Mike wants to make pretty picture of Venus for outreach talk. Mike digs through websites and finds some processed images. Mike spends evening playing around aligning and messing with colors of the processed images he found, and only then does Mike find UMSF thread where all this has already been done......]

Here's my addition to the Venera 14 work and to the images done by Don Mitchell and Ted Stryk:

If you can imagine standing in the center then it's a relatively undistorted view, sort of a faked polar projection. In reality, the two outer ends of Camera 1 Pan and Camera 2 pan should touch.

Cropped image showing "best" view forward. Perspective is that of sitting in a rowboat looking at the decking on either side.

Nice versions Mike. The Venera images have always been among my all time favourites from the entire space age. (How long must we wait for more views of that forbidding surface?)

Nice image compositions :-)
One of my favourite Venera visualizations is this :
http://www.astro.uni-bonn.de/~dfischer/mepco/venera.jpg

It comes from this page: http://www.astro.uni-bonn.de/~dfischer/mepco/

It's an early attempt to correct the image perspective.

Wow! Thanks! That was really helpful!!!

Here is a reprojected image using Daniel Fischer's diagram as a guide, then using the reprojected camera I image as a guide for the camera II side (happily, the symmetry was extremely helpful!):

A higher res version TIFF is on my flickr site (6.5 Mb TIFF): http://www.flickr.com/photos/31678681@N07/4164881557/

To pretend "being there" attach the two ends of the strip together to complete the full panorama.

Here's a polar reprojection that's been further warped:

(And attempted vortex-fisheye modifcation didn't produce pleasing results.)

AndyG's your man for that. I keep hoping that he will do more than the two endless panoramas he has given us so far, or that others will pick up on the technique.
