The laser is for the adaptive optics. The light from the target is distorted by the atmosphere. By seeing how another light source with known properties is also distorted by the atmosphere you can correct the distortions and obtain a better final resolution..

Seggallion,

Actually the camera isnt looking though a telescope, its just taking long exposure pictures every 10 seconds or so. the longer the exposure the more light let in to the lense the more you see. It`s so obvious.

and those who think the moon landing was faked because theres no stars in the videos, is this faked because theres loads? or that the camera is configured with a high exposure where as the cameras used on the moons didnt have a high enough exposure setting?

"Right, we`re NASA... our job is to catalogue all the stars in the sky and then invent even larger telescopes to find even more and catalogue all of those too"
