Abstract: The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) has surveyed a large sample ( > 100) of active galactic nuclei in the low redshift universe (z < 1). Its response at short wavelengths makes it possible to measure directly the EUV spectral shape of QSOs and Seyfert 1 galaxies at z < 0.3. Using archival FUSE spectra, we form a composite extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectrum of QSOs at z < 1 and compare it to UV/optical composite spectra of QSOs at higher redshift, particularly the composite spectrum from archival Hubble Space Telescope spectra.
