As I have written before (before your were following NavList, Tony), the name "Transverse Mercator" is like clickbait. You don't need the Transverse Mercator projection for anything except understanding certain old standards for mapping applications. Setting that aside, there are lots of interesting tricks for celestial navigation near the poles. It's a worthy topic, for sure! Just ignore the TM aspect.
