Using the data set from T-240 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry
downlink, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 210610A (trigger #1054627)
(Page et al., GCN Circ. 30160).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 204.284, 14.476 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  13h 37m 08.2s
   Dec(J2000) = +14d 28' 32.5"
with an uncertainty of 1.7 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 26%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a structure with two overlapping pulses
that starts at ~T-6 s and ends at ~T+11 s. The two peaks occur at
~T-2 s and ~T0, respectively. T90 (15-350 keV) is 13.62 +- 3.15 sec
(estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-5.98 to T+11.35 sec is best fit by
a simple power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged
spectrum is 1.41 +- 0.19.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is
1.0 +- 0.1 x 10^-6 erg/cm2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from
T-0.29 sec in the 15-150 keV band is 2.5 +- 0.4 ph/cm2/sec.
All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
