Mercator Mandelbrot Maps
Images of the Mandelbrot set with a logarithmic projection around a point c0: z-> (log(|z-c0|), arg(z-c0)).

The idea for this kind of logarithmic map of the set is from David Madore. While it is a bit of a stretch to call it a Mercator projection, it sounds better than just a log scale map.

If the Mandelbrot set is assumed to be about meter-sized these zooms reach the size of an atomic nucleus.
