Abstract

We consider the monopole contamination of the normal sequence, 1 M companion star of the fast binary pulsar PSR 1953+29. We find that the photosphere of this star is practically monopole free, i.e. the number ratio r of photospheric monopoles to nucleons is r < 3 × 10−29. If the Callan-Rubakov effect exists at the predicted level, the much stronger limit r < 1.2 × 10−42 is obtained and the galactic isotropic flux is bounded by F < 1.3 × 10−20 cm−2 sr−1 s−1.
