Using the data set from T-61 to T+242 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 200416A (trigger #966554)
(P. A. Evans et al., GCN Circ. 27591).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 335.691, -7.525 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  22h 22m 45.8s
   Dec(J2000) = -07d 31' 29.5"
with an uncertainty of 1.4 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 33%.

The mask weighted light curve shows multi-peaked structure. The
overall structure starts at ~T-2 s and lasts till ~T+6 s.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 5.04 +- 0.73 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-1.31 to T+4.69 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.76 +- 0.15.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 8.7 +- 0.8 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T-0.05 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 3.8 +- 0.5 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
