The microscope is good quality and lights are ok. The problem is the magnification. I don't know how strong it must be to see clearly all the deatails of Pipunculidae genitalia for example.

Hi Jari,

It depends a bit on the genus you are looking at, but for Tomosvaryella or Chalarus a magnification of 80 or higher is recommendable.
