A modular cryogenic cross-disperser MOBIUS for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) is being developed to produce a simultaneous zJHK spectrum with a single LUCI, the LBT Utility Cameras in the Infrared. Its compact and exchangeable optical design fit within the existing focal plane mask frame of the LUCI spectrograph without any other hardware modifications. This unique deployable system enables a rapid acquisition of data over a wide wavelength range to better understand the unknown objects in the universe.
