At c=0,0 the Julia set is a simple circle. A similar thing happens at every miniature Mandelbrot - a Julia set corresponding the location within the minibrot, but with filaments going out similarly to the minibrot. C won't be 0,0 at the minibrots, but the corresponding point will have a circular Julia set at the center, and small variations will give the range of other Julia shapes. You can usually use Julia exploring to see the variations, with Precision increased, but with large zooms you may need to increase Low Bailout and Julia Max Iterations to see it and sometimes the Julia explorer doesn't keep pace with the main settings.I found the only way to increase or decrease the Julia numbers in single digit increments was to position the cursor to the the right of the number in the sequence, hit backspace and change the number to a higher or lower number. if I use the arrows to the right of the numbers or use that scroll wheel on the mouse, the number changes are too fast for precise incremental changes. I wish I could slow the changes down without having to go the first tedious process mentioned above.

In this particular case, C real is still 0 because the minibrot is on the main antenna to keep all the rays straight and symmetric, which is not usually the case.
