You have to keep the cursor in the middle of the concentric rings, the higher "class" an asteroid is - and the weaker your mining laser - the harder this will be. If you sway out of the rings, you'll have a short time to get back in before the laser destroys the asteroid and you get nothing. Basically the idea is just keep your cursor inside the rings while you mine the contents, which is shown with a number that counts down. Keep practising, you'll get the hang of it =)
