As you see zooming capabiliteis of MSExplorer are limited.

MSExplorer uses extended type of floating point numbers (Range =( -3.6 x 10^4951 .. 1.1 x 10^4932), Significant digits =10-20, Size in bytes = 10).

If one wants to produce unlimited zoom ( it means limited by time and patience) must use arbitrary precision library, like :

- Wes Loewer's arbitrary Precision math library used in fractint
- GMP - free library for arbitrary precision arithmetic

for 32-bit integer math

For 64 bit double precision (floating point) numbers zoom limit of Fractint is approximately 10^15

Lode Vandevenneshows that numerical limit of 64-bit floating point numbers is reached at zoom more than 10^18 times .

With arbitrary precision algorithms ( "Instead of using 64 bit double precision to represent numbers, your computer software allocates as much memory as needed to create a data type supporting as many decimals of precision as you want.") the zoom is unlimited.

Jack Of TraDez produced a zoom to E+89 ( video made with Fractint).
