Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 100805A (trigger #430957)
(Hoversten, et al., GCN Circ. 11047).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 299.846, 52.618 deg, which is 
   RA(J2000)  =  19h 59m 23.0s 
   Dec(J2000) = +52d 37' 05.8" 
with an uncertainty of 2.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 39%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows a few overlapping weak peaks
starting at ~T-1 sec, peaking at ~T+2 sec, and ending at ~T+20 sec.
There is a possible 3-sigma peak at ~T+60 sec.  T90 (15-350 keV) is
15.0 +- 3.0 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-1.4 to T+17.1 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.76 +- 0.23.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 5.1 +- 0.8 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+1.97 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 0.7 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
