MUSE images of the globular star cluster NGC 6388

These images of the globular star cluster NGC 6388 were obtained during the testing of the Narrow-Field adaptive optics mode of the MUSE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. The image on the left is from MUSE in Wide Field Mode, without the adaptive optics system in operation and the centre panel is an enlargement of a small part of this view. The image on the right is the view from the Narrow-Field Mode of MUSE when adaptive optics are switched on.
