So what is the connection between Takahashi and Swift. Was Swift a distributer that marketed scopes built by Takahashi? I'm wondering this because there is a 65mm refractor in the classifieds that has Swift and Takahashi written on the metal label on the focuser.

Well thanks. It is as I expected with Swift being an importer/distributer. The 65mm scope on ebay they are discussing in the thread you linked me too seems like it is the same scope I saw in the CN classifieds yesterday.
