Abstract

We present an overview of the AO systems at the LBT concentrating on the unique capability of two adaptive secondary mirrors and pyramid wavefront sensing. These permit AO compensation down to 16th magnitude guide stars enhancing field coverage as well as extreme AO compensation for bright targets.
