What a pita
I thought my new 10mm EP was messed up or scope went bad.....
fuzzy looking ellipse thing,put in my paradigm 8mm.
Same thing,but sorta steady seeing I could "barely" see 2 points of light.
Good gawd!!.....are they all this annoying?!?
-of course I am using 5" ARES reflector
still I saw it.....kinda

Castor is one of my FAVORITES. The pair looks like some faraway car driving at us with its highbeams on, because the two stars are white and have almost exactly the same brightness.

actually my 60x700 mm refractor and my 3'' F/9 reflector easy split Castor,providing great views.
I don't think the issue is with your eyepieces.
Wish you good luck at your next double star observation.
