Cone Nebula as an animated zoom in series

I have shot many targets with a several focal lengths and instruments.
Due to that, I'm able to publish some of my photos as an image set, with a different field of view and detail levels. The fractal nature of our universe stands out nicely by this way and it will make the orientation more easy.

Note. an apparent size of the Moon is marked as a circle.
Moon has an angular diameter of ~0,5 degrees, that's ~30 arc minutes.
