I have found myself searching for the Destinations in Overview too many times now.

With the parenthesis, at least there was something distinguishing about them.

They just 'blur' into the Planet and Moon names, with a circular icon that stands out NOT from the Planet icon.

Please, revert this back.

Why on Earth was this implemented anyway ?? What was wrong before ??

NOT a good idea at all, after this first day of implementation.

I approve of this new change .. the Stargate was redundant.
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.  Without me, my signature is useless. Without my signature, I am useless

Thank you for at least responding intelligently.

I really don't see a problem with the removal. The icon is clear enough for me at least. Besides, planets are named by the system you're in (usually), which is displayed at the top right. So it should be easy to know which are planets and which are gates.

I see where you are coming from. But, for a lot of long time players, it's a visual cue thing.

I'm wondering who's idea it was that it had to be some critical change ? I recall no complaints or discussion. Or real need.

Perhaps strike some middle-ground? Keep the names as they are now but give players the option to recolor overview icons to our own tastes? I think that would solve a lot of issues.
