Summary: Linearized Gauss-Newton iteration method is used to determine main axes of the three-dimensional ellipsoid approximating peach. Three independent photos displaying the peach as ground, side and front view are used as data sources. System Maple 11 was used as a computer environment. A practical example is presented in order to demonstrate the usage of all required commands. The quality of approximation is evaluated as a final part of the paper.
