Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 190123A (trigger #885314)
(D'Ai, et al., GCN Circ. 23769). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 53.175, 45.505 deg, which is
RA(J2000) = 03h 32m 42.0s
Dec(J2000) = +45d 30' 16.3"
with an uncertainty of 1.7 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 64%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows a single FRED-shaped peak from about
T-5 to T+20 sec, with a peak around T+3 sec. Observations were discontinued
due to an observing constraint at ~T+325 sec. T90 (15-350 keV) is
24.4 +- 4.3 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-1.22 to T+28.06 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.13 +- 0.23. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 8.4 +- 1.1 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+4.82 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.0 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
