These raw data from http://live.spaceil.com could be useful to play a bit with Excel:
http://live.spaceil.com/data/data_s1.txt (22/2 - 12/4)
http://live.spaceil.com/data/data_m.txt  (22/2 - 16/12)
http://live.spaceil.com/data/data_s2.txt (4/4 - 12/4)
Probably they will be updated at each maneuver to fit to new calculations.

Problem via the latest update:

Feb. 26 – Last night at around 12 a.m. Israel time, another maneuver was planned for Beresheet as it passed near Earth, in an area without communication.

During the pre-maneuver phase the spacecraft computer reset unexpectedly, causing the maneuver to be automatically cancelled.

The engineering teams of SpaceIL and IAI are examining the data and analyzing the situation. At this time, the spacecraft’s systems are working well, except for the known problem in the star tracker.

Communication between the control center and the spacecraft remains as planned, and Beresheet continues its previous orbit until the next maneuver. We will continue to provide updates regularly.

I've warned you before, Chris Bergin, there's a mission thread for this and updates on the above nature should be posted here:

#Falcon9 has been placed on the transporter. Unfortunately, I showed up too late for it to be included in my time lapse, but here’s a shot for y’all to see. @SpaceXFleet

We sped up the beginning. In total, the lift took about 40 minutes. This is filmed and rendered in 4K, we are having trouble with our current rendering computer.

It takes the crane operators and crew around 6 hrs to load and make ready for transport.

Just a quick reminder that the plan was to pause around GEO graveyard to dispose of Spaceflight hardware before dropping down to PSN-6's operational altitude, with S5 deployment somewhere in the middle.

March 5 – SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) shared today that Beresheet's camera took a selfie photo for the first time, from a distance of 37,600 km (23363.5 miles) from Earth. The spacecraft transmitted the photo to the control room in Yehud, Israel, which is staffed 24/7 by SpaceIL and IAI engineers.

In the photo of Earth, taken during a slow spin of the spacecraft, Australia is clearly visible. Also seen is the plaque installed on the spacecraft, with the Israeli flag and the inscriptions "Am Yisrael Chai" and "Small Country, Big Dreams."

Video of #Beresheet's landing leg deployment, recorded shortly after separation from the Falcon9 second stage on February 22. In the background, the launcher with the main payload, making attitude correction. Also in the background, the Moon.
