We report the detection of radio and X-ray pulsations at a period of 51.6 ms from the X-ray source RX/AX J2229.0+6114 in the error box of the EGRET source 3EG J2227+6122. An ephemeris derived from a single ASCA observation and multiple epochs at 1412 MHz from Jodrell Bank indicates steady spin-down with ˙ P = 7.83 × 10 −14 s s −1. From the measured P and ˙ P we derive spin-down power ˙ E = 2.2 × 10 37 ergs s −1 , magnetic field B p = 2.0 × 10 12 G, and characteristic age P/2 ˙ P = 10, 460 yr… CONTINUE READING
