Thargoids
- H - 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.
4.4 Alpha Centauri Rare traders
Muggins
- M - Lose a few hours of your life trekking to Hutton orbital 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 fun.

78.6 Gateway Megaship - M - At system location: Orbiting planet Hope. Hercules Class Cargo Ship (*moving). Collinson Class Asteroid Ship is a non-dockable combined megaship and asteroid station, see this image, Sources(s): Voubi and AlistairHope. There are common engineering materials floating around the ship but nothing to scan. There are other ships flying around the megaship but mostly they are security forces or bounty hunters, every now and then a low level pirate turns up and gets quickly turned into scrambled egg. Feels like a LO-RES in nature so a possible spot for beginners to pick up a few bounties.
79.4 Ngalkin Installation - M - At system location: A 1 C. Giant Civilian installation (CQC structure with tunnels, etc). See this image. Source(s): 777Driver, Alec Turner
79.7 R Coronae Austrini Explorers A crazy disco light like star as shown here. Looks like changes in Elite Dangerous have been made as the behaviour of this star seems more muted now although it is still super hot like a White Dwarf or Neutron star (although it is listed as a type B).

88.5 Gacrux Traders - H - One of the cheapest sources of Imperial Slaves. Ramanujan Terminal (L) is listed by EDDB as having very cheap Imperial Slaves for sale
89.1 Codorain Bounty Hunters - L - Sounds like the name of a medicine. ”Want to rank up with the Feds, Empire and Alliance all at the same time. Want to cash in of all those bounties without trekking all over the bubble. You need new fast action Codorain.” Codorain is an empire system (usually) surrounded by mostly fed. systems and usually either one of nearby Arque or Turditani (wow, that’s an unfortunate name) is an Alliance system or will have an Alliance faction present at least. These systems are swapping allegiance all the time but Codorain and nearby Kodoroy always have an empire faction present whilst Arque and Turditani always have an Alliance faction present. Also of interest for this area is nearby Delkar, an Industrial system with a PMR (Pristine Metallic Ring) although beware the nearest Hi-Tech system (for gearing up) is not very near at all.

90.7 Vucub Huan Bounty Hunters - L - 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 Installation - H - At system location: 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.
91.2 Aku Hi-g-Landers - L - High g planetary landing challenge. Planet 1 has a gravitational pull of 3.5g, thats 3.5 times that of earth. Try to land without splatting your spaceship. There is some kind of ground facility here (no docking facilities) called Sturgeon Works.

114.0 Orrere Wreck
Materials Hunters
- M - At system location: 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.

146.6 Grovichun Traders - M - Near the centre of empire space. 15000+ CR for Pall. 56000+ CR for Platinum is typical. A great place to sell metal stuff although be aware that the station is circa 10000 Ls out but that in itself makes it a great place for pirates! Although I have never encountered any NPC pirates there even with a ‘Conda cargo hold full of Palladium.

The barnacle fronds can be harvested for synthesis materials, these seem to be readily available: Iron, Carbon, Sulphur, Phosphorus, Germanium, Manganes, Chromium and Nickel. You can also harvest these barnacles for Meta-alloys. Best to sell Meta-Alloys at Darnielle's Progress to get the highest price (around 115000 CR each).

It is a great jumping off point for exploring the California nebula, Witch nebula, …). Be careful in Open Play there could be human pirates about. I would recommend Explorers to only enter this system either in Solo or in a trusted player group. In and around Maia there is a cluster of blue star systems so bring your scanners (ADS and DSS). There are also several pristine metallic rings around, see here. There is actually a reasonably profitable trade route between Obsidian Orbital and Darnielle's Progress (a planetary station) within this system and it take a minute or so to travel between the 2, this must be one of the fastest trade routes in the game, with about 2200 CR per ton in a round trip. There are also a lot of missions at both stations back to the bubble and to some military stations in the area. There are some long range haulage (and smuggling) missions but they have been nerfed now. Last but not least, all 3 major factions (Federation, Empire and Alliance) are present here so you can collect bounties for all 3 at once.

- H - Note that Te Kaha, Takarua, HIP 8396, Robigo, Ceos and Sothis form a semblance of a line of systems ending here at Sothis. Sophis has 2 stations, a terraforming one and an extraction one. Take crystalline gold from the main station back to the bubble (a Rare), allocation seems to be 20 tons which is a lot for a rare. Another system, Ceos, is nearby so it is often the target of short range missions from Sothis. Used to be a good system for long range haulage but I don't think this is the case any more. For miners, very close by is a Pristine Metallic Ring system (HIP 11879) although be warned, Sophis and nearby Ceos are crap-tacular for mining supplies (and it is a long trek to the nearest well stocked Hi-Tech system). A great jump off point for deep space exploration, there is a Wolf-Rayet star (HIP 5100) within 150Ly and some binary stars a bit further out from that, although I didn’t spot them until after I had returned from the Wolfy-Rayet star, Doh!. There are a few black holes around (Mintaka?). There is also a small nebula LBN 642? nearby. Also this system is on the way to the California nebula, Witchhead nebula, Horse's something nebula and a whole bunch of other nebulas all in one big galactic dust-up so big it is pretty much visible everywhere. Perhaps, do a circular mini-exploration loop by returning via Merope. Whilst you are here, Nearby Mirphak is a great source for Niobium (3.2%)
506.5 Mirphak Materials Hunter Planetary object A 2 is a beautiful velvet red coloured class IV gas giant. All of the moons of this gas giant are metal rich and so well worth a detailed scan. They are also very small, the largest is 210 km in radius. Most interesting of all is the moon A2d which has a very high 3.2% Niobium, one of the highest in the galaxy according to EDDB. It also has Arsenic at 2.2% and Selenium at 3.3%. There is a pod of type B blue stars nearby, including a black hole in nearby 39 Delta Persei. So although it is slightly away from the bubble it is well worth a snozzle.

Bring your mining gear, there is a goliath pristine metallic ring here, within which there are beautiful views of the class Y dwarf star bubbling away in the background. The PMR ring is the inner one and between the goliath inner and outer rings there are the three moons. The inner (pristine metallic) ring is over 1000000 km from inner radius to outer radius and the outer one (metal rich) is over 21000000 km. Another goliath PMR ring of Mintaka (another 'O' star) is also not to far away either (about 56 Ly). See this page for more details.

Moves to different systems, usually on a weekly basis. The best way to find it is through EDDB: The Gnosis on EDDB. Double check for the location here as this website can get a little out of date. This is the Canonn's very own megaship. Has full RRR facilities, a commodities market (Hi-Tech) and outfitting (but no Shipyard). Further trips are planned, just make sure you are docked in it on the transfer day and you and your ship will be transferred with it.

- M - Close to the other inhabited Alliance system in the California Sector, another Hi-Tech planetary station, Mahon Research Base, is based here. A great stop off point for explorers and for exploring the California nebula in particular. Also this station buys metals and some minerals at reasonably good prices so could make a great mining base, although mining equipment is thin on the ground, either bring it with you or have it transported out here but you will be able to stock up on limpets when you arrive. The mission and passeneger mission boards were both empty at this system when I visited.

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.
