Starting this as the go-to spot for finding these little guys. Post your findings here. If the necessary viewpoint is from a specific area, please make sure to mention it. Will update this as information comes in. Underlined planets are fully complete and confirmed by myself. Note that my Imperials are not leveled to macrobinocular quest level yet, so confirmation will take a while. Thanks to all so far, keep them coming in. One note, please specify the area you are when you post (ie: Jundland Wastes or Justicar Territory). If I miss your info, send me a personal message and I'll rectify it.

There seems to be a bug at least in the Dromund Kaas count. Can't say about the others as I haven't gotten to these yet.

The first one you find when you get the macrobinoculars, is counted every time you find it on a different character. I had 2/6 found after finding only the first one on two different characters, while I still have 5 more to find if there are actually 6 different ones. So will I then have 7/6 or 12/6 if I find them all 6 on both characters?

EDIT: Since you get 1 from the Shroud quest , could it be that the one in the quest is one randomly selected from the six existing ones? I've got a ****** memory so can't tell for sure if I found the same one as the first on each of the two toons when doing the Shroud quest, but I just kinda automatically assumed the quest would be the same for each of your characters. Then again, the counter now says 5/6

E) Dromund Kaas (suspected 5th)

The one described in the post above is the one you see in the quest from a different angle. The one I found is tricky.

Third one on Tython is in the final questing area, as you first enter it and start to ascend the stairs up the large temple. At the first landing, facing the temple, look to the ruins off to your right. Sorry. Can't recall the names of the areas off hand.

B. In Fort Alde, perched atop a spire/antenna high above the fort.

HOTH
A) In the Starship Graveyard, perched atop the starship wreck that sticks out to the west from the dreadnought at a 45-degree angle. The droid is sitting on the highest point of the wreck.

In all of three of these, they can be seen from many angles.

I'm not totally convinced. coz with yours I now have 6/6 found and the achievement lists completed. So either it has counted the same one twice (from different characters) or I got two different ones when doing the Shroud quest on both characters.

Ah, sorry about that. I'm kind of terrible at describing relative location. I just meant that it wasn't soaring up in the air. It does lead me to wander how creative they are in hiding these things. So far I'm noticing that they all kind of make sense with the quest lore in that
  • They're all out in the open where they could get a good signal
  • They're all somewhat elevated
  • They're all near man-made things (towers, buildings, antennas, etc)
  • They're reasonably spread out over the map (call it a density theory)
I looked all over since last night. No luck yet :/

Edit: I don't have my second up to 53 yet but I'll try it tonight.
