Using the data set from T-239 to T+880 sec from the recent telemetry
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 200411A (trigger #965784)
(Tohuvavohu et al., GCN Circ. 27536).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 47.686, -52.320 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  03h 10m 44.7s
   Dec(J2000) = -52d 19' 12.6"
with an uncertainty of 1.6 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 100%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a couple overlapping pulses
that starts at ~T-0.02 s and ends at ~T+0.25 s. The highest peak
occurs at ~ T+0.05 s. T90 (15-350 keV) is 0.22 +- 0.04 sec
(estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.02 to T+0.25 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
0.95 +- 0.19.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 8.6 +- 1.1 x 10^-8
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T-0.38 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.1 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence

Using the 4-ms binned light curve, the spectral lag of the short pulse
is 1 (+7, -4) ms for the 100-350 keV to 25-50 keV bands, and 8 (+6, -6) ms
for the 50-100 keV to 15-25 keV bands. These values are more consistent
with those of short GRBs.
