Chinese rocket firm Galactic Energy is aiming to launch its 2nd and 3rd Ceres-1 solid rockets from Jiuquan in September and December [2021] respectively. Galactic Energy became the 2nd Chinese private firm, after iSpace, to reach orbit in November 2020. https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/SyNpfWCKXgyVJEIxHPynNw

Payload name listed on spaceflightfans.cn circa July 23.

Listing on spaceflightfans.cn changes launch date to "October" circa September 1.

Does anyone know, if the "Fangzhou-2F" payload is the same payload as the "Fangzhou-2", which was originally thought to have been on the Hyperbola launch failure?

I think they are different, Fangzhou-2F is upgraded version of Fangzhou-2.

On this page http://www.galactic-energy.cn/index.php/List/cid/7 it says

"NEXT MISSION
Ceres One (Remote 2)

The rocket has a diameter of 1.4m, a total length of 19m, a take-off mass of 30t, a LEO orbital carrying capacity of 400kg and a 700km SSO orbital carrying capacity of 270kg"

The photo is the vehicle from from the first launch.

19m, does it mean that Ceres will use its big fairing, like on the website renders? I guess we'll have the answer in a few minutes...

Guys, sorry my ignorance, but I would like to corroborate this:

The rocket:
Gushenxing-1 is the same as saying Ceres-1. They are the same vehicle, right?

Thanks in advance!

The Gúshénxīng is  一箭多星(Yījiànduōxīing,One Vehicle Multiple Payloads),
except Jīnzījīng-1 03 (金紫荆一号03星,Golden Bauhinia-1 03),
Tianjin University-1 (天津大学一号) is also one of payloads.

Gǔshénxīng-1 with Jīnzījīng-1 03.

Is this the patch for any satellite riding along with Jinzijing-1 03?

It seems to be the patch only for the Jinzijing-1 03 mission. ZG6U-1D3 refers to the 3rd use of Zero-G ZG3U-1D platform and the big 6 to the 6th Zero-G mission.
