We present analysis of Swift follow-up observations of MAXI J1305-704 (Sato et al., ATEL #4024), which has been proposed to be a newly discovered Galactic black-hole binary (BHB; Greiner et al., ATEL #4030). Starting 16:07UT on April 11th, 2012, Swift observed MAXI J1305-704 for 1ks as a Target of Opportunity, with the Swift/XRT in Windowed Timing (WT) mode, to avoid pile-up. This follows initial observations made by Swift in a 4-pointing Photon Counting (PC) mode tiling observation on April 10th, initial results of which have been reported by Greiner et al.
