Just a heads up.. If imgur images you post don't show up you can bypass the issue by removing the 's' in //https from the image url.

(thanks go to Qohen Leth for that tip!)

DW: Still undecided

System: Plimbeau ZE-R E4-2732
Description: A blue planetary nebula with BH as a central star. Has a ringed Y dwarf with 5 ringed gas giants as moons. A The sole landable planet orbiting the dwarf offers an unique view to the the ringed planets. The sky looks like a sunny day with white clouds!





 
Aside from the Keelback rings, that were included in the Galacting Mapping as the best locationI've found so far. :)

A ringed gas giant that has another four ringed gas giant moons in close proximity, all of them are easily visible. On of the gas giants has a single landable ice world, when I was there there was a sport from which all gas giants were visible, this place is still a one-of-akind I've ever seen. I submitted it as a tourist destination - not sure if it has made it, but the rest of planets have been claimed by someone already.

Location:
The images disappeared from the OP (like my originals from imgur), but the location sits right at the Galactic Aphelion, so could be a waypoint en route backwards.

On the sidenote, I think some good WPs from the original DW could be reused!

Found an interesting system we should check out on dwe2

So I was talking to someone in the outer rim tour channel on discord since I am currently in outer rim tour and he mentioned an interesting system that happens to be out near sag A. The Devils Dance floor https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/76irbf/freelance_report_newly_found_system_dubbed_the/ here is a post about it. 4 neutrons and a black hole. Should be an interesting sight to visit. There is another system but its out closer to colonia that has 3 neutrons and a landable body that orbits a dwarf star close enough that you can see the tail cross over your ship. I can provide a link to that as well if needed.
 
A reminder that the scouting event ends in one months time - 1st September. After that date I'll begin working on the route and waypoints, so late submissions may be hard to integrate.

My Submission is my favorite system I found during Distant Worlds.

This system is cool for 3 and a half reasons.

First it is a System Nebula system meaning that there is a cool cloud of gas around the system giving all the backgrounds while inside the system this cool glow that unfortunatly I don't have any screenshots of anymore

Second. There is a Neutron Star at the center of this system

Third. There is also an Earthlike out at the 3rd star shown in my imgur gallery above

1/2. There's a landable Ringed planet. I haven't been there but it seems it could be a good location for a landable waypoint.
