Description :

The sixth Starlink launch overall and the fifth operational batch of Starlink satellites will launch into orbit aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. This mission is expected to deploy all sixty satellites into an elliptical orbit about fifteen minutes into flight. In the weeks following launch the satellites are expected to utilize their onboard ion thrusters to raise their orbits to 550 km in three groups of 20, making use of precession rates to separate themselves into three planes. The booster will land on a drone ship approximately 628 km downrange.

Telemetry

The entiere Telemetry of the launch has been extracted using SpaceXTelemetry (program that i wrote, not open source now)

SXT reads data frame by frame and it uses the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and sometimes this OCR could give wrong results because it isn't perfect, so some numbers are faked a little, you could see the complete telemetry extracted in this csv file there is also a json file but the csv file, with all the extracted data i started making comparisons and graphs
