This paper describes the SLR experiment with only a compact Nd =YAG mode - lockedoscillator. The output of the oscillator is 5 ~ 10mJ (532nm), 50~100ps pulsewidth. Onlyone flashlamp and one Nd= YAG rod is adopted, so the laser has a small size with 32 kgweight. The 60cm aperture receiving telescope and the single photon avalanche diode(SPAD) detector is used. The successive ranging to Lageos - 1 and Lageos - 2 (about8000km range) on October 31 and November 1, 1994 are reported (Fig. 1, 2, 3 and 4).
