Exploring the Galaxy Day 3 and 4, then Back Home

I am not going to post all my Screen shots in this post. You can visit the complete imgur album Instead. I will however touch on some shots I thought were pretty awesome. I started my trip in Eravate my home system. I made my way to the witch head nebula and then from there I went to the running man nebula and then onto Barnard’s Loop and through it.

I discovered quite a few new objects.

There were several Binary star systems that I visited the one pictured below what not a bad one about 100 ly later I jumped into one that put me between the two stars that were a lot closer than you seen in this one and it fried my ship a bit thankfully I came prepared with heat-sinks and was able to escape with minimal damage that was repaired by my AFMU.

On my way to the witch head nebula I found my first water world. I had hoped it was an earth like but alas it was not. Pictured is a terrestrial water world with an active water-based chemistry and carbon-water-based life.

once passed Witch head and into the orion nebula and running man on through Barnard’s Loop I stumbled upon some neat gas giants.

On may way out of Barnard’s Loop I decided to visit a know location of a black hole and this was the major reason I had to end my trip so short it had a planet orbiting it and apparently that means the planet is going to be a very high gravity planet and I belly flopped my ship.

At this point I was 900 ly from my home system. That is 30 jumps with my ship. so with 3 heat-sinks left and 40% hull left and about 1/4 or my repairs left in my AFMU I plotted course to head home. I think my next trip will be to Sagittarius A* I believe but is going to take some time planning and preparing myself for the trip out there. as it will probably take me longer than just 4-5 days.
