Paper Abstract

We discuss astronomical observing requirement sand their implementation using sodium-layer laser guide star adaptive optics. Specific issues requiring implementation include the ability to place the astronomical object at different locations within the field of view; reliable subtraction of Rayleigh-scattered light; efficient focusing; and stable ;point-spread-function characterization.
