So, it begins! Last night I was able to get in about 9,000Ly, even with starting out going the wrong way – had my route to somewhere different for some reason, I will chalk it up to nerves.
Along the way, I was swayed by a Nebula not to far away – NGC 6357 – to give it a visit, so I did.
It was one of the better looking nebulae that I have ran into so far.
This trip will probably be full of detours and distractions – that is kind of the point in going out 65k Ly to the edge of nowhere, so expect some more picture like these to follow.
Streaming schedule of the trip:
Today – Approximately 1pm or so, for a few hours with no commentary – thought I will answer any questions in chat as I can
Tonight – Approximately 7pm with commentary. CMDR altlesjoe may also be in chat, and maybe CMDR whatevernick. Joe is beginning his way back from Sagittarius A*
Tomorrow – Approximately 7pm with commentary
Sunday – Approximately 7pm with commentary
Monday – Streams during the day with no commentary and at night with.
As always, I will be streaming on my YouTube Channel.
So far, beyond having a hard time turning around one binary star grouping and starting out going the wrong way, the trip has gone off without a hitch. We will see what happens 48 bookmarks later when I get to the Abyss.
