Has anyone been able to get a screenshot from a terra planet in a binary system with both suns eclipsed by a moon or other planet at the same time?

Yep. (From an older version)

Plenty of screenshots of these in the image dump thread, too, you'll just have to do some searching. Best way to find them in SE is to look for a multiple star system with a good planet/moon, and time accelerate until the moon's orbit crosses the plane of the star system at the same time that the stars are near one another. It takes quite some time to get a good alignment unless you're very lucky.

Very nice video! I've been trying to get the timing, distance, and size of eclipsing body right but its tough. Off to the image dump.

That video is pretty neat! I'll definitely have to take some time one of these evenings and find one myself.
