Starting from near the edge of the rift 4000LY out from Sol, I began to make my way over to the Jellyfish Nebula.

Jellyfish Nebula contains a Neutron Star, so I made sure to set that as my target. Unfortunately due to the stars in that system, views of the nebula were poor, so other nearby systems offer better views, and I was able to get some nice images.

Day three ended with me heading directly towards the Crab Nebula, ignoring the nearby Rosette, Seagull and Monkey Head Nebulae to allow me to get a high number of unexplored systems. I made another mistake with a star, damaging my hull slightly once again, but nothing too serious… As I shut down my systems for the night, I had 1622LY of travel remaining to reach the Crab Nebula.

Space Gaming Category Information

My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.

I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.

These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I also occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and rather than doing this to instruct others of the best way to play, I do it because of the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
