Using the full data set from the recent telemetry downlink, further
analysis of Swift-BAT GRB 050713B (Trigger #145754; Vaughn et al.,
GCN Circ 3590) yields a refined position of RA, Dec 307.820,
+60.938 {20h 31m 17s, +60d 56' 17"} (J2000) with an uncertainty
of 3 arcmin (radius, 90% confidence, statistical+systematic).  The
light curve shows a FRED-like profile of total duration ~75 seconds.

The spectrum over the interval from T-2 to T+178 seconds can be fit
with a power law with photon index 1.56 +/- 0.13 and yields a fluence
of 8.2 +/- 1.0 X 10^-6 erg/cm^2 in the 15-350 keV band.  The peak
flux in a 1-sec wide window starting at T+4.4 seconds is
2.2 +/- 0.6 ph/cm^2/sec.
