It is not perfect, but I think that something like the code below could be 
the solution.


Plot3D[Sin[x] Cos[y]^2, {x, 0, 2 Pi}, {y, 0, 2 Pi},
PlotStyle -> Directive[Opacity[0.3], Red],
ViewPoint -> {
dist Sin[zen] Cos[azi + dazi],
dist Sin[zen] Sin[azi + dazi],
dist Cos[zen]
Background -> Black, MeshStyle -> Red, AxesStyle -> Red, Boxed -> False],
Plot3D[Sin[x] Cos[y]^2, {x, 0, 2 Pi}, {y, 0, 2 Pi},
PlotStyle -> Directive[Opacity[0.1], Cyan],
ViewPoint -> {
dist Sin[zen] Cos[azi],
dist Sin[zen] Sin[azi],
dist Cos[zen]},
Background -> None, MeshStyle -> Cyan, AxesStyle -> Cyan, Boxed -> False
}, spac],
{{azi, 1, "Azimuth"}, -Pi, Pi}, {{zen, 1, "Zenith" }, -Pi, Pi},
{{dist, 3.5, "Perspective"}, 0, 5},
{{dazi, 0.1, "Eye angle difference"}, -Pi/4, Pi/4},
{{spac, -350, "Image spacing"}, 0, -500}, SaveDefinitions -> True]
