Three pulsars have been detected with the Lexan (100 Å )filter of the EUVE Deep Survey telescope: the middle-aged isolated pulsars, PSR B0656+14 and Geminga, plus the aged millisecond pulsar PSR J0437–4715. The EUV detections have been used both alone and in combination with observations in other bandpasses to limit the physical state of the objects and to test theories regarding neutron star cooling and re-heating mechanisms. For Geminga, the EUVE data suggests the presence of an optical cyclotron spectral feature superimposed on the Rayleigh-Jeans continuum tail from a hot pulsar surface. We summarize EUV pulsar observations and results.
