Description: Created using Ultra Fractal.

This is a render of the degree 2 version of the formula suggested by Garth Thornton based on the formula due to Daniel White and Paul Nylander.

Here's the iteration loop as used in UF (note that the initial value of magn is pre-calculated):

          if magn<1e-200
            zri = cri
            zj = cj
            r = (magn=sqrt(magn))^@mpwr
            th = @mpwr*atan2(zri)
            ph = @mpwr*acos(zj/magn);(real(zri)+flip(zj));
            zri = r*(cos(th)*sin(ph) + flip(sin(ph)*sin(th))) + cri
            zj = r*cos(ph) + cj
          magn = |zri| + sqr(zj)
