We present here the optical observations of EI Psc (1RXS J232953.9 + 062814) through Turkish National Observatory (TUG) with RTT150 cm Russian-Turkish joint telescope and its X-ray observation using the ROSAT archival data. Our optical observations reveal a period of 0.0408 days (58.75 min) which is rather different from its early value of 0.046 days (66.24 min) as reported by [Schmeer, P., 2001. vsnet-alert6830, ]. Also possible periodicities as well as any QPOs are studied without having any clear indication of it. Archival ROSAT RASS data are also analyzed for its X-ray spectra.
