We combine ASCA and RXTE data of V1062 Tau to confirm the presence of a 62-min X-ray pulsation. We show that the pulsation is caused largely by the variation of dense partial absorption, in keeping with current models of accretion onto magnetic white dwarfs. Further parametrisation of the spin pulse is, however, hampered by ambiguities in the models.
Key words: accretion, accretion disks / stars: individual: V1062 Tau / novae, cataclysmic variables / binaries: close / X-rays: stars.
