I'm looking to start highsec exploration and need some feedback on the following fit. Will this allow me to do most / all highsec exploration sites?

I expect that is has enough gank, but will a ~200+ tank be suitable for the sites I'm likely to find in highsec?

I use a myrm for lowsec exploration, altough I do have a dedicated scanning ship - and I'd suggest you get your covert ops frigate like Anathema or Cheetah or whatevere it is you have highest skills in to scan down exploration sites. You get vastly easier time scanning stuff down if you add some rigs to it as well. Anyhow yeah that looks enough tank for high-sec, you should do fine if you fit the plex specific resists -- Explosive & Kinetic for angel, EM & Thermal for Sansha/Blood Raiders/EOM etc.

fit highslots however you want them.

Re-arrange midslots to incorporate an ab, and/or change tank a bit if you don't need exactly THAT much tank for your sites.

(after you've run a dozen sites or so you should be able to gauge how much of your tank you can do without and replace with drone mods and/or other mods to speed up your plexing.

The myrmidon is perfect for solo (high-sec) plexing because it does not (really) need to use any of its high-slots for dps (I do recommend fitting one drone range mod tho)

If you want to do all high-sec sites, you shoul pick a smaller ship than a myrm.
A Battlecruiser will not be able to enter all plexes with gates on it. You will miss out on combat plexes mostly.

An assault frig will be able to enter all gates. I've done some high-sec plexing in a Retribution. It's fun (as far as PvE goes), but not really efficient. And the Retri lacks med slots for Radar/Mag sites of course...

The best pick would be a cruiser sized drone boat.
It should be able to enter most (all?) gates.
Ishtar or Curse would be optimal, but that's a bit overkill. Vexor should be enough.
