2 macro's together?

I'm wondering if it's possible to put two 10+ macro's together?

I can't zoom in properly with my new camera with the current macro, so i'm not sure if another added macro will work...

It will work, but the more glass, the more problems you might occurs such as loss of sharpness, colour abberation etc.

Is this for the purpose of using a 35mm adapter? If so, i've been through this route before, one +10 macro is already problematic with chromatic abberation and edge falloff. if you add another, this will aggravate the problem. Your solution is to use a achromat. Expensive, but solves your problem.
