I'm now about 250 jumps away, and with a relatively clear shot at Beagle Point.
I say relatively, because I had to plot a route to a star 300 light years above and to the left of BP in order to plot the whole thing in one go. A drop in the bucket, compared to the ten kly remaining.
Still stopping to explore along the way, of course.
A binary pair of water worlds. If only I could land on that polar ice cap...
A quadruple sunrise, along with the two brown dwarfs in the system (to the left and right of the central stars). You really barely see the smallest red dwarf in close orbit of the K class star. The planet itself was a terraformable world with the lovely name of ABCD 1.
Squeezed in a few more systems between getting home from golf and starting to prepare supper. Couldn't resist landing on this tiny moon with the unlikely designation of A8BA... which looks a lot like "ABBA"
edit the second:
one last one before bed
I got a little closer than I'd intended, but what a view!
Ceeckia FZ-D d13-0 - Looking back (near Beagle Point).
After arriving at Beagle Point and doing 'Salomé's Reach' my favourite image from 'The Solitude Void (Region)' is from Ceeckia FZ-D d13-0, a little further out from Beagle Point.
Never going to get a new paint job!
Given how many systems I kept finding that had been previously explored by others (thus spoiling them for my style of exploration) once I was within 5 kly of Beagle Point, I was surprised to stumble upon quite a few unspoiled systems this close to Beagle Point. A few highlights:
Stumbled upon close binary worlds that I wanted to take a closer look at.
I just had to take a closer look at that large red blob on the other world.
Turned out to be fairly unremarkable once I got down to the surface.
It's a pity there's no hand tracking in VR. It's kind of humbling to think you could hide all of the Bubble with your thumb at this distance.
Here you have a collection of 600 photos made by me during the whole DW2 expedition. It took a long time to collect all the shots and give them appropiate names, but it was worth it.
All of them have the name of the system where they were taken and the name of the Point of Interest featured. Each stage of my expedition is an album, and each stage corresponds to one of the weekly routes of the DW2.
I ended up taking about 1000 screenshots, when you include the basecamp scouting event from last year. I've posted a variety in this thread over the course of the expedition, but the whole collection is in folders here:
Hope this is still ok for all of you, here are some Screenshots from the Voyager Trail (which I still consider to be a part of DW 2, reaching Beagle Point was just half the way ;-) ). I'm still some ways away from home, so there'll be some more pictures coming. Hope you enjoy it.
