Well on the way to Beagle Point now...

Just stopped off at Critchao AM-R B10-0, and gone down to the surface of planet C5 at one of the geological sites. I picked up plenty of material here and when I returned to P'Taq I did an external inspection.

The paint is very worn, so one of the first things I need to do when I get back to civilisation in a couple month's time is get it touched up.

Started the third leg.

Well, I'm now heading for Beagle Point.

I took a small detour to have a look at Suvua FG-Y f0 (Alatar and Pallando, stellar remnant), but it wasn't up to it's billing, no stellar remnant. It may just as well have been Noddy and Big Ears, or Andy Pandy and Looby Loo. Waste of time, but it was on the way (almost).

I'm now in the Acheron region at Flyue Byoe MS-D a39-3, 54,416 ly from Sol, although at my furthest I've been 54,734 ly away. The detour reduced this distance. This region is heavily populated by Brown Dwarf stars so far, I've had to make course corrections and stop listing them on my filters to avoid too many non-scoopable stars in a row.

I also decided to image P'Taq at a double star, made a nice shot.

Reached Hyiecho AC-C c13-0

This is the end of the second leg of my journey. The second side of the (slightly distorted) hexagon that I'm following around the galaxy.

The next leg takes me to Beagle Point.

I'm near the edge of the galaxy here, and it looks very different to the view from Sol.

31,815.7 ly to go and I'm half way through this journey.

But right now i'm having a rest. Tomorrow i'll explore a few local systems before moving onto the next leg.

Ultima Centauri

So I arrived at Ultima Centauri. Quite an interesting system really with two water worlds orbiting the neutron star.

I landed on moon B4 A, the blue light was, well blue!

Now I just need to plot the course for the rest of this leg to Hyiecho AC-C C13-0.

The Sagittarius Carina Arm

I've now entered the Sagittarius Carina Arm at Dryu Chroa EW-W C1-6 and my next waypoint is Ultima Centauri, just 22 jumps away.

I'm still seeing NSP's in a lot of systems, so life is widespread around here.

It's nearly 41,000 ly to Sol from here and so far that's the furthest I've ever been from home by a mile (actually I've been at my "furthest" for a good while now). It's only going to get further of course.

I think i'm making good progress so far.

Plenty of life

This area of Dryman's Point certainly harbours a lot of Penducle Trees and Penducle Pods. Most systems that I've visited have them at one Lagrange Point or another.

I'm kind of thinking that the Pods are the seeds of the Trees.

I've landed on a few planets and collected more elemental materials. I'm maxed out with Iron, Sulphur and Chromium now and Manganese will get there soon.

Dryaea Aoc HC-D D12 was a really interesting system with,

3 x High Metal Content Worlds 1 x Water World 3 x Notable Stellar Phenomena (mostly Penducle Trees) 2 x Landable worlds (and I landed on both of them)

2000 systems discovered!

Today I clocked up my 2000th discovered system at Dryaea Aoc BA-N B34-0.

So here's the picture...

Having done some more research, there is indeed a large void between myself and Magellans' Star...

enter image description here

I'll have to go south and around to get there and that's probably 2 to 3 times as far as I was anticipating.

So I'm going to revert almost to my original plan to head to Hyiecho AC-C C13-0, the next major waypoint on my galactic circumnavigation, but I'm going via Ultima Centauri. when I get there - then I'll head to Hyiecho AC-C C13-0.

Plans need to be flexible.

Heading to Magellan's Star

Did a bit of exploring, the region is well inhabited by the Pendicule Trees.

So I decided to head off to Magellan's Star. I managed 18 jumps to Droerst RT-Q C19-0 and got stuck. As suggested by EDSM there doesn't appear to be a direct route.

If I want to continue from here I'll have to plot it manually and go around the large void that lies between here and Magellan's Star. That could take a lot longer.

So I'm going to rest on it and ponder if I really want to do it.

Arrived at Droerdy OB-w C-15

I arrived at 10:22:42 on 30/7/3055. This is the first of my six legs completed, the last part of this journey was most interesting.

At the last 3 visited systems, including here I found notable stellar phenomena and plenty of biological life forms.

At Droerdy OX-L D72 there were 3 NSP's, all Lagrange Clouds with Albidum, Ostrinum, Rubidum and Viride Penducle Trees.

I found the same varieties at Droerdy SX-L D7-4 and also Caeruleum Penducle Trees and Candidum Penducle Pods.

enter image description here

And then here there is one NSP with Viride and Albidum Penducle Trees.

So I'm going to hang about this region and do a bit of local exploration for a day or two, land on a few bodies and collect some materials.

It's taken me 3 weeks (21 days) to get here, so I'm probably looking at another 15 weeks to complete this journey although I'm considering taking a detour to Magellan's Star at Ood Fleau ZJ-I d9-0, it's over 12500 ly away so it'll add a couple of weeks to the journey time getting there and back.
