To those asking for a higher resolution version, Chris Korda of Fractice, has done an excellent 'cover version' of my zoom. Uses the same final cords and is identical, but in much higher quality and nice colours . 5 Months render!

Original description...29th May 2007.
Mandelbrot. Deep zoom. 2^316!. Thats 315 zooms.

Note. zoom doesnt deviate from the X axis, to save render time.

First frame doubles in size every second.
You world need a monitor 2^316 times the size of a normal one to view the whole of the first frame by the time you get to the last frame.
That's approx 2^176 times the size of the known universe. Thats just so big you cant comprehend it.
Done using fractalExtreme.

2Hrs 30 mins render on the dell d420.
Sorry about the jerkiness and loss of definition, I had to get it below 100MB. The original avi was 223mb!
