Record your discovery

There are now 5 different ways to record your discoveries at Elite Galaxy Online.  For the most accurate and convenient recording we recommend using The Comms Link or The Ship Log Reader.

Please select which option you wish to use.


The Comms Link is a small desktop application which can detect when you scan an object from your ship.  The discovery will then be automatically recorded here at Elite Galaxy Online.


Directly upload data from your ships log to Elite Galaxy Online.  The Ship Log Reader will then automatically analyse the information and record any new discoveries that are found.  You will be able to see a summary of all discoveries recorded for each ship log once the process completes.


Upload multiple system map screenshots to Elite Galaxy Online.  The advanced discovery scanner will then analyse each image and extract any information it finds.  You will have a chance to review the data before submitting it as the character recognition process is not 100% accurate.


Upload a single system map screenshot to Elite Galaxy Online.  The advanced discovery scanner will analyse the image and extract any information it finds. You will have a chance to review the data before submitting it as the character recognition process is not 100% accurate.


Manually enter all of the details for your discovery.  Warning, this is the oldest method of recording a discovery at Elite Galaxy Online and can be pretty time consuming.  We recommend only using this method as a last resort now!
