Reflecting stereoscope

Home » Glossary » Reflecting stereoscope

A reflecting stereoscope is a stereo viewer that uses mirrors to view stereoscopic images. Stereoscopes based on mirrors are uncommon. Because of their size they are impractical compared to compact refracting and lenticular stereoscopes. The most wellknown reflecting stereoscope is the original stereoscope that was presented by Charles Wheatstone in 1838.
