    These are basically + diopter corrective lenses similar to putting on a cheap pair of reading glasses. Each one adds two morer reflective surfaces to the line-up with an air space to add muck to the mix. Given the right circumstances, they will work successfully. I'll stick to extension tubes and bellows.

    You should install them in ascending order 1,2,3 because the higher the # the greater the curve & possibility to scratch one of the surfaces.
    Some might say I have a bad attitude! Too bad.
