Sentinel 6 - Michael Freilich
s6tn.jpg
Just a .cfg based satellite mesh and launch scenario for 21 Nov 2020.
Zip file attached to this post.
I wanted to see if my autopilot could handle a direct insertion to 1336km orbit - it can't!
So the scenario is set for 200km x 1336km, requires circularization burn at apogee.
Might be possible to go direct if you fly it manually though, Falcon9 probably has enough dV, I might try that later.
Cheers,
Brian

From the timings on the SpaceX website, it looks like the Sentinel6-Michael Freilich launch will indeed be a 2-burn strategy (circularization burn at apogee). And it may be that it is actually impossible to do a single burn to 1336km x 1336km, simply because it can't get high enough quick enough :)

FYI Brian: I have the parking orbit of Sentinel-6 as 215 km x 1336 km. Your 200 km x 1336 km guess was nearly perfect.
