We report Rossi XTE and Beppo SAX 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 s s-1.
