We propose to applicate the system consisting of the laser illuminator and quantum amplifier of brightness on the basis of a copper vapor laser for observations of cosmic objects. The system makes possible visualizing objects and their details at a distance up to 100 m under direct solar light conditions as well as operating in the range-finder device mode.
