2. Nice!
I have a 10" Dobsonian that looks kind of like this:



The cool thing about the LBT is that by applying interferometry techniques, it will have the equivalent aperture of a much larger telescope and will be capable of "nulling out" the light of a distant star allowing earth-like (terrestrial) planets to be resolved. Ten times the resolution of the Hubble and adaptive/active optics "null out" the atmospheric effects as well.
