Swift does not make professional grade telescopes. While the company produces high quality optics, it only produces two models of telescope, both of which are fairly small. The telescopes are both only a few inches in diameter, well under the ten inch diameter usually found in professional telescopes. Smith does produce professional grade optics, but they are found in the company's line of microscopes. Swift produces high grade microscopes that are used in scientific and veteranary research.
