Adaptive Optics projects at Subaru Telescope span a wide field of capabilities ranging from ground-layer adaptive optics (GLAO) providing partial correction over a 20 arcmin FOV to extreme adaptive optics (ExAO) for exoplanet imaging. We describe in this paper current and upcoming narrow field-of-view capabilities provided by the Subaru Extreme Adaptive Optics Adaptive Optics (SCExAO) system and its instrument modules, as well as the upcoming 3000-actuator upgrade of the Nasmyth AO system.
