This image submitted by U.K. astro-imager Prof. Greg Parker shows us both of the twins in the same field of view.  The contrasting colours of Castor and Pollux make this 2-frame image more striking.  Image acquired using 2 x Canon 200mm prime lenses and 2 x Trius M26C 10-megapixel OSC CCDs on 10/02/2016.  Each frame was 1 and a half hour’s worth of 10-minute subs.  Image processed using Photoshop CS3 and Noel Carboni’s astronomy actions.
