  • We report deep optical integral-field spectroscopy with the MUSE of the luminous radio-quiet QSO PG1307+085 (z=0.154) obtained during the commissioning of the instrument. Given the high sensitivity and spatial resolution delivered by MUSE, we are able to resolve the compact ($r_e$~1.3") elliptical host galaxy. After careful spectroscopic deblending of the QSO and host galaxy emission, we infer a stellar velocity dispersion of $155\pm19$km/s. This places PG1307+085 local $M_{BH}-\sigma_… CONTINUE READING
