We report on the emissions of 1A 0535+262 over 2005 using data primarily from Swift-BAT and supplemented with data from RHESSI. We will present the light curve, spectra of the persistent emission and various smaller outbursts besides the recent large outburst, and report on cyclotron lines and pulse phase spectroscopy observed in the various epochs of emission.
