Mercator Mandelbrot

Zooms of the Mandelbrot set around a point projected so that the distance to the point forms a logarithmic scale. Details on the left edge are ~10^15 times smaller than on the right edge.


The rightmost black blob in the pictures is the main "continent" of the set. Satelite sets of different sizes can be seen linked by fractal chains of varying complexity.


The colors are set using the distance estimator method.
