The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) is a second generation instrument installed on the Nasmyth focus of UT4 at the Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the European Southern Observatory (ESO).

It is a panoramic integral-field spectrograph operating in the visible wavelength range. It combines a wide field of view with a fine spatial sampling and a large simultaneous spectral range. It is designed to take advantage of the improved spatial resolution provided by the future adaptive optics facility (AOF). MUSE had first light on the VLT on 31/01/2014.[5]
