Long ago I'd read that the Apollo astronauts used the side-step, "cha-cha" method of capturing at least some of their lunar photography in 3D. Now I've stumbled upon a Belgian 3D artist, Patrick Vantuyne, who has taken NASA's images and optimizd them for stereo view.

The image above was created from two frames of film (AS12-48-7133, AS12-48-7134) taken of Apollo 12 astronaut Pete Conrad visiting the Surveyor 3 spacecraft in November of 1969. The most expensive location shoot ever!
