FIRST, the Fibered Imager foR a Single Telescope, is a spectro-imager using single-mode fibers for pupil remap- ping, allowing measurements beyond the telescope diffraction limit. Integrated on the Subaru Coronagraphic Extreme Adaptive Optics instrument at the Subaru Telescope, it benefits from a very stable visible light wave- front allowing to acquire long exposure and operate on significantly fainter sources than previously possible. On-sky results demonstrated the ability of the instrument to detect stellar companions separated 43mas in the case of the Capella binary system. A similar approach on an extremely large telescope would offer unique scientific opportunities for companion detection and characterization at very high angular resolution.
