Paper Abstract

The Large Binocular Telescope is one of the most unusual 8 m class telescope and surely it has been inspirational to a number of novel concepts and innovations. We present here a couple of recently traced opto-mechanical designs to fit some niches in the parameters space of astrophysical usage. A coronagraph, as simple as possible, to take advantage of the LBT XAO ability dedicated to the ExoPlanets detection and a multiple very wide field spectrograph in which a large number of tiny cameras is foreseen, all with equal optical elements but for the pupil aberration corrector.
