Abstract
Laser Guide Star (LGS) Adaptive Optics (AO) on large telescopes has recently become a very productive science tool for the astronomical community. Astronomical objects can now be observed at an unprecedented resolution over much of the sky. The science enabled by LGS AO and the capabilities and limitations of these systems will be discussed, along with the lessons learned that can be applied to LGS AO systems on existing and planned telescopes.
