That's ok Im still learning here myself!
What your telephoto convertor does in effect it doubles your zoom power by a factor of 2.2X.

First photo was taken with the converter second with the normal 30X lens
Trying to add photo but its not working.
The one with the converter was blurry, both shots taken from the same distance

Yes you have to stay withing the cameras ability to focus either at extreme long zooms or close ups. It take a little practice so see where the focal limits are with the convertor on.

Yes it looks like one of my chipmonks lol
You can see how it effected your depth of focus dramatically at longer distances. Youshouln't even need it in most cases with that zoom power. You might need a tripod unless your super steady.
Is it a generic tele convertor I dont see any listed for your model I have the SX50HS similar to yours. I use adapters to mount a 2X tele convertor that Ive had for an older model Powershot to mine but only on close shots with very little zoom.
I've found with 50X zoom I don't need it.
