Abstract: The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) is a second-generation integral-field spectrograph currently in development for the Very Large Telescope (VLT), consisting of 24 Integral Field Units (IFU)νll. This paper presents the methodology for sky subtraction to be used in the MUSE data reduction pipeline. The method is based on the parameterized simulation of the night sky emission processes and the instrument response. In most cases, this method makes a separate sky exposition obsolete. The approach is described and illustrated here using simulated data.
