Hi Chris,

Yes, I considered the problem of the Pomerine meant to be in the Northern 
Hemisphere right now but the head markings were definitely those of the 
Pomerine, not the South Polar. I have seen both before and had a view of this 
one for about 3 or 4 minutes through a good scope. 

Going by experience, HANZAB and Harrison (both the drawing and photo editions) 
I would still say Pomerine.
