Is there a typical target altitude and speed for SECO on a Falcon 9 CRS launch? SECO precedes orbital insertion but there are multiple orbital adjustments afterward, so I also wonder: does Dragon have to be inserted into a stable orbit (in which altitude and speed are just right to keep it orbiting indefinitely if you ignore drag)?
