How to find a previously discovered system


Long story short, I rushed a few jumps early in the game to finish a story mission. I then wanted to go back to a planet that was very rich in resources and whatnot, but I was unable. I didn't find a way to set a waypoint or anything similar from the discoveries page, and trying to point and click in the star map is almost impossible.

Is there an easy way to go back to a system that you've already discovered?

One possibility is to use the scan for discoveries from the galactic map.

In the 1.03 version of the game on consoles this is d-pad up and on Windows tab is bugged, but trying x could work.

After I had jumped to several star systems away, I used this feature and found my already discovered systems.

This enabled me to locate where I had been and allowed me to warp back.
