Using the data set from T-119 to T+183 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 060926 (trigger #231231)
(Holland, et al., GCN Circ. 5612).  The BAT ground-calculated position
is RA,Dec = 263.925, 13.039 deg {17h 35m 41.9s, 13d 2' 21.5"} (J2000)
+- 1.4 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).  The partial coding was 94%.
The mask-weighted lightcuve shows a single FRED peak starting at T-1 sec,
peaking at T+1 sec, and ending approximately at T+10 sec.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 8.0 +- 0.1 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.1 to T+8.6 is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
2.54 +- 0.23.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 2.2 +- 0.3 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+0.38 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.1 +- 0.1 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
