  • Processing of raw data from modern astronomical instruments is nowadays often carried out using dedicated software, so-called “pipelines” which are largely run in automated operation. In this paper we describe the data reduction pipeline of the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) integral field spectrograph operated at ESO’s Paranal observatory. This spectrograph is a complex machine: it records data of 1152 separate spatial elements on detectors in its 24 integral field units. Efficiently… CONTINUE READING
