Abstract (from CDS):
We present a new integral field spectroscopic dataset of the central part of the Orion Nebula (M42), observed with the MUSE instrument at the ESO VLT. We reduced the data with the public MUSE pipeline. The output products are two FITS cubes with a spatial size of ∼5.9'x4.9' (corresponding to ∼0.76x0.63pc2) and a contiguous wavelength coverage of 45959366Å, spatially sampled at 0.2". We provide two versions with a sampling of 1.25Å and 0.85Å in dispersion direction. Together with variance cubes these files have a size of 75 and 110GiB on disk. They are the largest integral field mosaics to date in terms of information content. We make them available for use in the community. To validate this dataset, we compare world coordinates, reconstructed magnitudes, velocities, and absolute and relative emission line fluxes to the literature values and find excellent agreement. We derive a 2D map of extinction and present de-reddened flux maps of several individual emission lines and of diagnostic line ratios. We estimate physical properties of the Orion Nebula, using the emission line ratios [NII] and [SIII] (for the electron temperature Te and [SII] and [ClIII] (for the electron density Ne), and show 2D images of the velocity measured from several bright emission lines.
