An insta seems to be a bookmark that allows you to warp straight from a station undock, to someplace safer in a lowsec environment without having to align. This allows you to bypass a station camp or somebody waiting to pod you outside a station?

How exactly do you create one? I assume you have to undock, and fly straight out far enough to get off grid with the station? How far is that exactly? How would you go about making an insta in a busy and dangerous system?

150km, however further is better. Preferably fly until you can no longer see ships in front of the station.

Try doing it just before or just after downtime, or when the system is otherwise quieter than usual.

Otherwise hope that there is celestial object roughly in line with the direction you are headed when leaving the station.

Last option is to try and form a bookmark along a path between two other celestial objects that passes rougly in front of the station.

if the enemies in your system are just random gankers you may never see again, an insta ~170km or so out will work. If it's a constant group (say, you're wardecced and they frequently camp a station you go to a lot), you'll want one at least 500-600km out. The exact distance varies, but eventually you wont be able to see sentry guns or ships in front of the station. Once you're at that point, you can drop the BM.

The reason is, if an enemy sees you consistently warping 150km out, they can set a BM up that far out themselves and surprise you.

I made the mistake of hanging around in an assault frig 400km outside a Dodixie station when at war.

Buy the T1 version of your racial interceptor (Condor for example) and slap an MWD and overdirves in the lows since straight line speed is what you want. When you undock just activate the MWD and let it run until you get to 500km+ (1000km+ IMO). At the range you disappear from the overview and unless they already have the BM in place they wont be a ble to follow you. The second thing you will want to do is create a safe spot in the system that is away from the station. Just warp to something and drop a BM in the middle. This will let you insta to your escape point, then you can warp to your SS fairly quickly.
