We present near-IR, diffraction limited imaging of the nucleus of NGC 1068 obtained with NAOS-CONICA at VLT. These observations provide an accute view on the distribution of hot dust in the vicinity of the central source, at a 0.1” resolution. The use of a new type of coronagraph allowed us to detect and identify new structures at K, to calculate more accurate color indices, and derive the state of the dust in this very complex morphology. We also used deconvolution on images aquired in other bands to get an accute view of these structures.
