Earlier, a method of restoration of a profile of atmospheric turbulence has been proposed by the authors in two intersecting laser beams, creating laser guide stars. Results of further development of this method are given in the present article. In particular, for Kolmogorov turbulence, the integral equation with a sharp kernel like delta function, which allows restoring a high-altitude profile more simply and more exactly, than in the initial version of a method, is constructed. Data of numerical experiment shows a good restoration of a profile of real turbulence up to heights of 10 km.
