Hagoromo was a ~36cm nano satellite that was deployed by Hiten while Hiten was in a highly elliptical orbit around the earth, in 1990.
How was this done exactly? Was it purely ballistic capture (which still requires a tiny amount of thrust I think?) or more of a propulsive maneuver to enter into a lunar orbit?
What kind of propulsion and attitude control (if any) did Hagoromo actually have?

Hagoromo is the little one on the left, deployed for capture into lunar orbit from Hiten on the right as it passed near the moon in its highly elongated orbit around the earth - quite a cool robotic maneuver for a nano satellite in 1990 (and that's only the beginning of Hiten's story.)
