     A new method for spatial deconvolution of spectra is applied to near-IR spectroscopy of the doubly imaged QSO HE 1104-1805. The spectra of the QSO images and of the lensing galaxy are extracted, free of any mutual light contamination. Evidence for continuum microlensing is seen in the QSO images while the featureless lens spectrum, combined with previous photometry, indicates 1.0 < zl < 1.3.
