The discoveries observer panel allows you to see all the interesting bodies you have found with your scans. Many different types of searches are built in, and more can be user defined using the search scan sub panel. The observer lists all the bodies which match the searches you indicate you want to execute.

This panel uses searched defined by search scans sub panel to find interesting bodies in your scan data. A large set of built in searches is available, such as finding moons nears rings, large landable planets, etc. You can also define user searches, either based on an existing built in search, or fully developed by you.

Your observed discoveries are listed in a grid.

The icon bar allows you to set up the discoveries search. From the left:

The time selector allows you to limit the time the searches are performed over. If you have a very large history it can take significant time to perform the search, and you may want to limit it to the last week, or since the last dock. Use the selector to decide.

Using the search text box, you can filter events by if they contain this bit of text (any column). You can also use system:wildcard or body:wildcard to filter on on entries occurring at a specific place. Quote the wildcard if it has spaces in it.

The find button allows you to select which searches are enabled (by default a selection of searches are on). Selecting less will speed up the search.

The excel button exports data from the grid to a CSV file and thus to excel.

The total label shows the total number of searches found, or ... if the search is in progress.


The grid results support right clicking on a row, giving you the options to see the system on EDSM, go to it on the 3dMap, or view data on entry as a scan display.

The searches columns shows you all the names of the searches (as selected by the find button) matches for a particular body.
