There are two new articles about this missions with some new information.

The Planetary Society: What to expect when Beresheet launches to (and lands on) the Moon

Teslarati: SpaceX test fires twice-flown Falcon 9 for world’s first commercial Moon mission

Target orbit seems to be 215 km x 60,000 km (still no idea how they can do this and still land the booster) at which point all three payloads will be deployed as a single unit from F9 second stage, shortly after that Beresheet will be deployed while PSN-6 & S5 will head to graveyard orbit above GEO where the Beresheet adapter will be discarded, then PSN-6 & S5 will go back to a lower orbit, S5 will be deployed and then PSN-6 inserts itself into GEO.

Beresheet will do a bunch of orbital maneuvers (detailed in the Planetary Society article) to land on the Moon.

Of Course I Still Love You has arrived at the landing zone ahead of tomorrow night's landing out at sea, Mr. Steven is well underway and has moved far out, should arrive tomorrow at some point at its specific fairing catching location. ;D

Fairing recovery boat Mr Steven changed the course to the west and leaving the hazard area towards to port by some reason.
