We report RossiXTE and BeppoSAX observations of the X-ray pulsar RX J0146.9+6121 , the neutron star/Be binary system with the longest known spin period. Data obtained one month after the most recent outburst (July 1997), show that the source has returned to its normal luminosity of a few 1034 erg s-1 while spin-up continued at an average rate of ~ 5x 10-8 s s-1.

Abstract

We report RossiXTE and BeppoSAX observations of the X-ray pulsar RX J0146.9+6121 , the neutron star/Be binary system with the longest known spin period. Data obtained one month after the most recent outburst (July 1997), show that the source has returned to its normal luminosity of a few 1034 erg s-1 while spin-up continued at an average rate of ~ 5x 10-8 s s-1.
