Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 210305A (trigger #1035922)
(D'Ai, et al., GCN Circ. 29595).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 319.808, 34.548 deg which is
    RA(J2000)  =  21h 19m 13.9s
    Dec(J2000) = +34d 32' 52.8"
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 74%.
The BAT light curve showed a complex structure with a duration of about ~100 sec.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 68.6 +- 4.4 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-21.65 to T+71.76 sec is best fit by a power law
with an exponential cutoff.  This fit gives a photon index 0.93 +- 0.19,
and Epeak of 104.1 +- 19.7 keV (chi squared 43.93 for 56 d.o.f.).  For this
model the total fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 7.1 +- 0.2 x 10^-6 erg/cm2
and the 1-sec peak flux measured from T+0.26 sec in the 15-150 keV band is
3.4 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec.  A fit to a simple power law gives a photon index
of 1.49 +- 0.04 (chi squared 71.71 for 57 d.o.f.).  All the quoted errors
are at the 90% confidence level.
