What can you say.. pure routine, they just chuck them out like it's a rural bus service. Congrats on the 13th landing of a single booster(and that on a Friday). Congrats on getting the landing video feed better and better.

Did they skip the Octograbber again?

Falcon 9 B1060 launches for the 13th time — a new record for SpaceX’s Falcon fleet — with 53 Starlink satellites headed to orbit from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center

This mission marks the 100th reflight of an orbital class rocket booster!

A vapor cone forms around the fairing of the #Falcon9 as it heads to space with another batch of Starlink satellites. This booster has now been to space and back 13 times! #SpaceX

Could you elaborate further? I have no idea what skipping Octagrabber means.

We never see the Octograbber deploy on the droneship. We only see it once it returns to port, so there is no way to know if that is the case.

What SnowyOwl is asking "hasn't Octograbber come out yet?"

And the answer would be "it takes a bit of time to safe the rocket, vent, cool down and then it'll come out and grab B1060".
