You can manipulate the fractal in several ways: It is best to navigate the fractal in one of the low iteration modes (e.g. 1 or 2) because this can be done in near real time. When you find a part of the fractal you want to see in more detail, that is the time to chose a higher iteration mode.

Try out a different function \(f_c(z)\):

\(f_c(z) = z^p + c\) where p = (2 + i0)

\(f_c(z) = z^4 + c\)
\(f_c(z) = z^5 + c\)

c = -0.7 + 0.27015i
