The recently installed Adaptive Optics system NAOS now offers diffraction limited images at the VLT. Together with the CONICA camera, NAOS provides the possibility to perform high dynamical range observations in the near IR domain. We present here NAOS-CONICA (hereafter NACO) capabilities as well as the first images of binaries obtained during NACO commissioning.
