Orion nebula with MUSE

The MUSE spectrograph produces data cubes, consisting of image slices at different wave lengths. A number of such slices (fitted to characteristic emission lines) is shown in this movie. In the second part of the movie, only those slices are shown which make up the composite images (RGB) in the front. The wavelengths are given in nm.
