Is it possible to hack/scan down null-sec sites with the best Alpha clone modules/skills?

Yes, usually you will get one of 4 cans intact. Rest will explode, but since you are alpha why should you care. I mean - you agreed to play just the shadow of the game anyway...

I care because I'm trying to earn enough ISK to PLEX my account.

So (with a low success rate) it is possible, right?

erg has given advice specific to ghost sites which... isn't really your question?

It looks like max alpha skills with an exploration frig, sisters launcher, sisters probes, and two grav caps gives a sensor strength of 91 and change. I believe with those stats you can pin anything except sleeper caches (and you can probably get limited sleeper caches with some jiggling). You *might* not be able to pin 10/10 band sites but honestly you're not missing enough there to worry about it.

Also worth noting: null sites are not harder to scan than high or low sites. So there's that. If you can pin everything in high, you can pin everything in null.

I'm an alpha, and I scanned down a sleeper cache site the other day in high sec ... But I didn't have the skills or equipment to access anything
