Using the data set from T-60 to T+243 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 130627B (trigger #559139)
(Oates, et al., GCN Circ. 14936).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 181.914, -55.706 deg which is
  RA(J2000)  =  12h 07m 39.3s
  Dec(J2000) = -55d 42' 20.3"
with an uncertainty of 1.8 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 95%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a single peak starting at ~T-6 sec,
peaking at ~T+2 sec, and ending at ~T+22 sec.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 28.6 +- 5.8 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-10.5 to T+26.0 sec is best fit by a power law
with an exponential cutoff.  This fit gives a photon index 0.13 +- 1.03,
and Epeak of 47.6 +- 8.7 keV (chi squared 56.72 for 56 d.o.f.).  For this
model the total fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 6.1 +- 0.8 x 10^-07 erg/cm2
and the 1-sec peak flux measured from T+1.82 sec in the 15-150 keV band is
0.8 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  A fit to a simple power law gives a photon index
of 1.79 +- 0.16 (chi squared 68.34 for 57 d.o.f.).  All the quoted errors
are at the 90% confidence level.
