on behalf of the Swift-BAT team:
Using a partial data set from T-119 to T+183 sec from recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 060923C (trigger #230711)
(Stamatikos, et al., GCN Circ. 5591).  The BAT ground-calculated position
is RA,Dec = 346.123, 3.963 deg {23h 4m 29.4s, 3d 57' 47.4"} (J2000)
+- 2.2 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).  The partial coding was 17%.
With only a partial data set downlinked (there is a gap in the data
between T+51 to +62 sec), the mask-weighted lightcurve has a single long
emision from T+0 to T+110 sec.
The lower limit to the fluence in the 15-150 keV band is
1.3 +- 0.2 x 10^-6 erg/cm2.  We repeat that there is an 11-sec gap
in the data in the middle of this burst used for this analysis.

When the full data set is downlinked, we will report the usual numbers.
