The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer
Front view of the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE).
The two electronics cabinets (one for the cooling system, the other for the fore-optics and calibration unit mechanism and lamps) can be seen in the foreground. The front part of the fore-optics is visible at the top of the main structure. It faces an optical system which simulates the Very Large Telescope (VLT) light beam.
