Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 090417B (trigger #349450)
(Sbarufatti, et al., GCN Circ. 9135). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 209.624, 46.954 deg, which is
RA(J2000) = 13h 58m 29.7s
Dec(J2000) = +46d 57' 14.1"
with an uncertainty of 4.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 94%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows that this burst started before T-200 sec
(where we start collecting event data on each trigger), slowly rises
to a peak around T+400 sec and slowly decreases out past T+950 sec
(where we stop processing the data). T90 (15-350 keV) is greater than 260 sec.
The time-averaged spectrum from T+278.7 to T+617.1 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.85 +- 0.14. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 2.3 +- 0.2 x 10^-06 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+434.93 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 0.3 +- 0.1 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
