Hope this will be accepted, I foolishly failed to include my CMDR name in the screenshot and wanted to wait till I returned to the Bubble before submitting my evidence (this is actually my second time beyond 65 kLy but my ship got destroyed by a neutron star jet on my way back from the first attempt so to me that didn't count). Anyway this is my looking back at Sol from Oevasy SG-Y d0:

Here's a screenshot of my Travel Map with Oevasy SG-Y d0 highlighted:
EDSM Oevasy Screenshot.jpg

Further evidence that I did indeed visit there can be found in https://www.edsm.net/en/poi-visitors-list/index/id/1695466/name/Oevasy+SG-Y+d0/p/18 - I jumped in on May 29, 2020, 12:55:42 PM.
 
I'll put this on my radar, as I've been planning another Buckeyball Classic run to the center, in a vanilla Diamondback (albeit Grade-A components, but no other enhancements), which is closer to 38ly jump range. On the other hand, I heard a report of a hurricane coming to my area in a day or so, so if you don't hear from me in a while, you know why.

Given my Cobra run to the center was under a day, and I'll be using something with upwards of double the jump distance, combined with this being at or around twice as long, it's definitely doable.

Screenshots to show I'm there: I couldn't target Sol without the permit, so I've targeted A. Centauri for my cockpit picture

I hope this is sufficient. I'm also hoping/planning to have a shot at 48 hour run once I've gotten back to the bubble and engineered a ship properly.
 
I am currently in the process of setting up for my Classic Buckeyball run with a vanilla Diamondback (so the cross-referencing with them should help my legitimacy, doubly as I am too new to be able to afford a carrier without some kind of blatant cheating), stripped down to the barest essential parts in the hopes I can kill two birds with one stone and also attempt reaching Beagle Point while I'm headed in that vague direction.

This post acts as a mark for cross-referencing purposes, and while not denoting the precise time of start, can be used to help validate the historical accuracy of this attempt I intend to commence today. There will be screenshots after the attempt is done, so this post does not mean the clock starts ticking now. It is only to help create a cross-reference for validation and legitimacy purposes.

Will end by 8-12-2020, if all goes well...I fully intend on completing the 48 hour challenge, even though as of this writing, I'm saddling up and doing last-minute preparations.

Semper Bellum.

Made it to Sag'A just now, and given the time I made, combined with the comparatively loose 48 hour window for the journey, this is a good time for a lunch break. :p No records were broken in the making of this effort, which has me INCREDIBLY BUMMED!

Meh

Did it years ago

Nothings an achievement anymore

Everybody gets a ribbon

Wouldn't want anyone to feel bad...
 
Nothing's an achievement anymore.

I noticed, and it SUCKS! But for different reasons: all the achievements have already been claimed...many times over. And to me, that sucks out most of the fun in Elite.

Also I had to fix some punctuation up there. I'm sure you wouldn't mind (or notice).
 
1 day in, and MY GOD is it mind-numbing! I admit, I DID have to sleep for 8 hours, but still, I'd better be halfway to my goal by now. Probably won't have enough time for a second sleep. See attachments for progress report.

We still call it the 48h challenge but you've got less than an eighth of that to be setting records round here these days ;)

I was referring to a different record, specifically the fastest time in a vanilla Diamondback from Moon to Sag'A. But yeah, I was never planning on going for THAT record. Though yeah, vanilla ship with no boosts or anything, making the trek in 48 hours...that is still pretty hardcore. Getting within a couple hundred jumps now, and let me tell you, it's no joke. In fact, it's kinda like SUPER Buckeyball. XD :p

o7 Cmdr, added to both sheets.

I just saw that my entry (#45) doesn't have distance, here's two screenshots for proof, if you want them :

Two jumps to get there, I assume ;)

Sheet updated.

I use EDDiscovery (which is where I pulled the GalMap image from) and it failed to convert the pictures from Oevasy SG-Y d0, but I can post the jump log from Colonia if needed. Likewise, I failed to grab a picture showing the right hand panel, but I hope the GalMap (or log, if needed) plus the picture of my obnoxious bubble letters will suffice. I could also throw the Oevasy SG-Y d0 bitmaps to Imgur as well.
 
I decided to go to the other side of the galaxy for my summer vacation :p

The ship was renamed from Discovery to commemorate reaching Beagle point. (The screenshots are from Oevasy SG-Y d0)

After a 2 year hiatus on a deep space moon rock, I returned to my trusty ship and decided to visit Colonia to see what all the fuss was about. Since I made it that far, I obviously had to drop by our friendly super massive black hole. And since I made it that far, it was just a short jump to Beagle Point and beyond. Not crazy at all.

But finally I made it :cool:
