A way to construct a holographic indicator of the position of the central axis of a distant object based on recording a transmission hologram in a layer of photosensitive material and forming a remote real image before a light source is considered. A light source with a holographically formed marker designed for visual guidance to the object axis; it can be used to simplify aircraft landing on a glide path, preliminary visual alignment of large coaxial details of various machines, etc. Specific features of the scheme of recording a holographic marker and the reconstruction of its image are considered. The possibility of forming a remote holographic image marker, which can be aligned with a simultaneously operating reference laser system for determining the direction to an object and its optical axis, has been demonstrated experimentally.
