We describe here three possible schemes of the laser reference star formation, namely, monostatic, bistatic, and intermediate. We also determine here limiting potentialities of methods of correction for random tilts of a wavefront from natural star using a signal from a laser star. The monostatic scheme of the laser reference star formation is shown to be totally inapplicable for these purposes. The capabilities of the bistatic correction scheme are estimated. Then we show the possibility of using an intermediate scheme.
