This animation zooms into the center of a Julia set in the antenna (west) part of the main set, then pans up and keeps zooming in to smaller Julia sets, ending finally at a size of 1e-78. When the animation pauses and starts to pan (at time index 1:20 minutes), the size of the image is 1e-21. This is one of my favorite animations, and I have plans to redo it at 640x480 and to continue to higher magnification as well.
