民营火箭助推航天梦 “谷神星一号”一箭发五星

Private rocket boosts space dream "Ceres No. 1" launches five stars with one arrow

At 14:20 on November 16th, the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center was surrounded by red lights in an instant, and the Ceres-1 rocket soared into the sky amidst the roar, "five stars with one arrow" rushed to space.

Looking at the rocket's plume getting smaller and smaller in the blue sky, Zhang Junfeng, the chief designer of Ceres 1 of Xinghe Power Aerospace Company, said nothing. He did not breathe a sigh of relief until all five satellites were successfully put into orbit. The record of consecutive successful launches of Chinese private rockets was refreshed at this moment.

Zhang Junfeng had no time to celebrate. It was only two months before the next launch, and he rushed back to Beijing's "Rocket Street" that day. "Rocket Street" is located near Ronghua South Road, Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone, where a group of private star rocket companies, including Galaxy Power, gather.
The Y5 might be launched in January 2023.

Presumably 2023-003B/55134 could be the spent Ceres-1 stage, given that the CubeSats are waiting to be deployed.

On a busy Monday, China completed the second of two orbital launches to start its 2023 campaign. A CZ-7A mission from Wenchang and a Gushenxing-1 flight from Jiuquan were both successful.

Do we know what organization owns the Keji-1 sat?  Xiamen University perhaps? Or Xiamen Tianwei?

gives a pic of the Nantong sat and identifies the manufacturer as Shanghai Weixing Keji  (new to me)
Looks like a 6U maybe:?
