The Large Binocular Telescope (LBT), which is currently under construction on the top of Mount Graham in Arizona, will be a Fizeau interferometer with a maximum baseline of 22.8m. From the point of view of image reconstruction, the interesting feature of this instrument is that it will require routinely the use of multiple images deconvolution methods if the aim is to produce a unique image with the resolution of a 22.8m telescope. Our group is working on this problem since a few years and has already produced methods and software for the data reduction problem. In this paper we provide a survey of our ongoing work.
