Lidar equation has been derived for the case when the anisotropy of a scattering medium is assumed to be weak to introduce any essential distortions into the wave front of a sounding radiation. It is shown in the paper that this equation may successfully be used when interpreting data of lidar sensing of crystal clouds in the atmosphere.
