Abstract: 
Regular (permanent) observations, which are conducted by the station of laser ranging of artificial satellites, require the proper functioning of all systems including optical, electronic and mechanical, which complement each other and interact closely. This article deals with the modernization of the mechanical part, which ensures the movement of the telescope during the location of satellites. We discuss the scheme of telescope cable entry system engines through a bar from above and the basic scheme of the device for control of the number of turns of the TPL-1 telescope of the Laser Ranging Station “GOLOSIIV-KYIV”.
Keywords: cable entry system, satellite laser ranging station, telescope TPL-1, telescope turns counter
