Ok, I must be stupid. What am I looking at in these pictures, because none of them are anywhere near in focus to the 10 on either of my monitors. Maybe the 6 mark below the line in the 4th picture but certainly not the 10.
My wife has no idea about photography and I asked her where the 4th pic was clearest and she picked the area around the 6 as well.
Am I looking at it wrong or am I supposed to balance it out above and below the centre line that is supposed to be in focus?
Sorry. Just want to know so I can check my own KR.

I think you'll find all your answers best addressed by downloading the chart itself [below], and I'm sure that in this case you'll appreciate the first paragraph "The Internet is wonderful" as being a most apposite read.
