NSF has been calling one of the payloads Tiange 1, while Jonathan (jcm) is calling it Tianqi 1. Any explanation of the different names? Is Jonathan's unknown cubesat Hongyan 1?

This launch used CZ-2C s/n Y22 (the smallest number left unused, which shows how long this project has been).

Or reassigned payload for rocket.

Hongyan-1 being part of a LEO communication satellite constellation, I would not expect it to be in SSO

Great continuous video of the launch, showing a closeup of the first stage ignition, the full first stage flight and a very clear view of 1-2 hot staging.

A "vintage" poster made by CNES about CFOSAT mission.

Sorry I don't have a better resolution image.

Because possibly we use different translation software. In this case the name is simply different.

I think we both agree the name is 天启 ?
The issue is not translation (the translation appears to be "Revelation" or something like that) but transliteration - how
do you spell 天启 in the Latin alphabet? The standard pinyin appears to be 'tianqi' but that's not necessarily unique and there are other conversion systems which are not necessarily better or worse.

Xiaoxiang No.1 02 Star TY1-02 is a laser communication new technology verification satellite jointly developed by Tianyi Research Institute and commercial aerospace field startup company Shenzhen Hangxing Optical Network Space Technology Co., Ltd. (LaserFleet). The company plans to use hundreds of satellites to build a laser communication network in space in the future to provide high-speed Internet access for civil aircraft. As the first technical verification star of this program, this satellite will carry out a series of basic technical verification to lay the foundation for the follow-up work.

Xinghe TY1-03 is a new remote sensing technology satellite. It is jointly developed by Tianyi Research Institute and Chengdu Guoxing Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd., and the two sides will build a global and minute-level updated image data network consisting of 192 satellites. The satellite is the first star of the new remote sensing technology of the constellation and will explore a series of commercial services.

Changsha High-tech TY4-01 is an amateur radio satellite independently developed by Tianyi Research Institute. This satellite is mainly loaded with amateur radio payload developed by amateur radio enthusiasts. It is planned to conduct on-orbit ground communication test for amateur radio enthusiasts. At the same time, the satellite will verify the next-generation satellite platform independently deployed by Tianyi Research Institute.

Tongchuan No.1 TY4-02 is the first verification test satellite of the “Tiange Plan”. It is an astronomical exploration satellite jointly developed by Tianyi Research Institute and Tsinghua University Astrophysics Center and Tongchuan City of Shaanxi Province. This satellite, as the first verification star of the Tiange plan, will lay the foundation for the development of the subsequent Tiange plan. At the same time, the star is equipped with a new type of high-sensitivity X-ray polarization detector to carry out a new astronomical observation test. In addition, the satellite will also verify the inter-satellite communication technology and conduct a natural-ground link test with the satellite ground station of Shaanxi Xingyi Space Technology Co., Ltd.

Tongchuan No.1 TY4-02 is the first verification test satellite of the “Tiange Plan”. 

And (based on the link in Chinese) that is indeed NOT the same characters:   天格 vs 天启  (Tiange not Tianqi)
Also, Tianqi is from Guodian Gaokeji YG, while the Tiange Project is  Tianyi/Tsingua/Tongchuan, so different
players. I conclude that Tiange and Tianqi are unrelated names.  ("Tian" is a very common element of Chinese
space names like Tianzhou, Tiangong etc because it means 'Celestial' or thereabouts...)
