Region Notes
0.0  Sol  - H - Humans
Permit required (especially for Thargoids). Check out Voyager, a kind of E.D. easter egg. Check out the Federation Battlecruiser near Earth (unless the Thargoids have already got to it) but don’t get too close, there is also one near Mars but apparently it is the president's personal ship and if you get too close they open fire. I seem to remember that this system has inter-system trade potential, buying metals at the extraction stations and selling them at the service ones. I think Jupiter has some RESs for bounty hunting within a ring that is unusually sparse of ‘roids. I went here to get selfies in front of all the famous planets and moons.
Base Jumping Ariel Canyon ridge jumping (Aashenfox) A great base jumping location with 0.03-0.04g gravity. For more info see video Source(s):Alec Turner
4.4  Alpha Centauri  - M - Rare traders
Lose a few hours of your real life trekking to Hutton orbital (about 1 and a half hours) to pick up some mugs. And whilst you’re there you can drop one off, you-yourself, what else could you be if you did this stupendous run? Still it has gotta be done for some fun.

11.8  Epsilon Indi  - H - Canyon Runners Do some canyon running here. Mitterand hollow as shown here by 777Driver. Mitterand is a small moon orbiting the planet New Africa. Mitterand Hollow is also an amazing planet for the speed in which it orbits its mother planet, around 90 seconds. Land on it and watch the mother planet go flying past every 90 seconds or so.

Materials Hunters
Bells World, at lat./longt. -10.9630, 170.1096 Wreckage of something, perhaps an Annaconda?. Fill up on Tellurium, Ruthenium, Antimony and Tungsten here. There are 3 cargo racks close to the wreckage, destroy them and they will release these rare materials. Log out and log in and start all over again until you have had your fill. Head for -10.9630, 170.1096. Check out the link here. Scan the wreckage before you leave and you will get a marker on the map for the next time you need to return. Supposedly, there are also Thargoid sensors here.

90.7  Vucub Huan  - L - Bounty Hunters In the Codorain area, ALL the factions were present in this system at one point so you could cash-in all your Empire, Alliance and Federation bounties in one go. I believe this is no longer the case but there are definitely Federation, Empire and Alliance factions in the local area so it should be possible to sell all your bounties by visiting this system and another nearby. Here EDDB lists the factions that are currently present in the system.
91.0  Nevermore  - H - Installation A1 Giant Civilian installation (Long structure). Image. Source(s):777Driver, Alec Turner. There are some satellites and a navigation beacon here as well although they do not seem to yield anything when scanned. There are quite a few ships including some security ships hanging around the installation and pirates appear every now and again. Feels like a LO-RES so beginners could get some bounties here.

Planet 2B, at lat./longt. 43.8122, -173.9826 Wreckage of an Annaconda. Fill up on Tellurium, Ruthenium, Antimony and Tungsten here. There are 3 cargo racks close to the wreckage, destroy them and they will release these rare materials. Antimony does not drop very often, but be patient it does drop. Log out and log in and start all over again until you have had your fill. It is hard to get to since it is in a difficult spot to reach. Head for 43.8122, -173.9826. Managed to land my cutter at 43.8191, -173.9291 right in front of the wreckage. There is also some Palladium, Gold and Berylium down there but the main goal is the rare materials. However, if your a starter looking for some free cash, then go down and collect the Palladium, Gold and Beryllium just lying around. Check out the link here. Scan the Annaconda before you leave and you will get a marker on the map for the next time you need to return. Still working as of 19-12-2017.

Rare traders
Asteroid Stations
The is not just about Lave but about the systems in and around the Lave area. Many of these systems in this area are pretty in themselves with lots of colourful ringed planets hence the good BH opportunities, however they are all long since depleted reserves so no good for miners. The main point is that this is a well known spot to pick up a bunch of rare trading items. Here is a link to some rare trading routes that include systems in the Lave area. There is allso an asteroid station in this system called Warinus.

INRA 1B (lat: 11.41, lon: 177.06) Abandoned INRA base Mayes Chemical Plant. There were a few common (no rare ones) manufactured materials around for salvaging when I checked the location. However scanning the data beacon yielded an 'Abandoned Settlement Location Data Package' worth around 120,000 CR. See this image.

The system name links through to EDDB where details of the stations in the system and their facilities can be obtained and also trade opportunities etc. (when it is available).

Most of the resources systems here I have found myself but many I have found on the elite dangerous forums and have given the links and credit where necessary. For Ship docks, Megaships, Installations and Asteroid bases I mostly used the information supplied by Alec Turner and AlistairHope.
