Don't waste your money or time. This a single element lens and probably a very poor one at that. Single element lens give good focus at the center but are soft towards the edges. This is particularlt treu at higher diopter powers like +10. You best bet is to get a +3 or +4 diopter dual element lens (achromat). +10 is very powerful and difficult to work with due ti it's extremely shallow dof.
