Thanks, N.
Don't know about the lean to the left - might just be "fisheye" lens effect - or maybe a wonky leg on the booster. Core stage landed on OCISLY about 1000km downrange.

Apparently the center core tipped and fell over on the ASDS due to rough seas.


The ASDS was farther out at sea to catch the center F9H core vs. when it recovers normal F9s. Apparently the Roomba can't hold the F9H core because of it's configuration.
