Kitstar auto tele extender ?

Does anyone have experience with a KITSTAR AUTO TELE EXTENDER ?
Is it worth having or worthless?

Looks like my "STAR-D" teleconverter, mostly worthless optically. It made a good 25mm extension tube for macro after removing the glass, not an easy one to disassemble though.

Thanks for the input. I suspected it was not very good.
It is however available with some old Pentax manuals and vintage bits for only $10.

I'd give $10 just for the hoods, so that is a pretty good deal.

I tried to elegantly disassemble mine to make an extension tube, but eventually gave up and opted for the hammer and screwdriver method. That 25mm of extension and a fairly wide lens like a 35mm or 28mm is a pretty good match if you don't need a lot of working distance.
