Using the data set from T-61 to T+242 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 110305A (trigger #448229)
(Grupe, et al., GCN Circ. 11773).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 260.877, -15.810 deg which is 
   RA(J2000)  =  17h 23m 30.4s 
   Dec(J2000) = -15d 48' 37.6" 
with an uncertainty of 1.9 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 22%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows a single pulse starting at ~T-1 sec and
ending at ~T+12 sec.  T90 (15-350 keV) is 12.0 +- 2.2 sec (estimated error
including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.9 to T+12.1 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.62 +- 0.19.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 8.0 +- 1.0 x 10^-07 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+6.06 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.2 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
The results of the batgrbproduct analysis are available at
