Twinax has two conductors... that's why it's called 'twin-ax'... Twin
Axial Conductors.

The picture looks to me like an N connector (which _was_ one of the
connectors used for 10Base5 terminators and intrusive taps).  Not sure
if that is a terminator or not, but as already pointed out, if you get
50 ohms between the center conductor and the shell, that will show it
for sure.
