The paper considers some problems connected with one of the most promising tendencies in the development of modern ground-based adaptive telescopes, in particular, with its fitting with additional optical system for a laser-induced guide star formation. The calculated results are presented for a “general” scheme of the laser-induced star formation when an arbitrary correlation between the random angular displacements of the image due to the laser beam fluctuations along the paths of forward and backward propagation may be achieved.
