AbstractV889 Herculis is one of the brightest single early-G type stars, a young Sun, that is rotating fast enough (Prot=1.337 days) for mapping its surface by Doppler Imaging. The 10 FOCES spectra collected between 13-16 Aug 2006 at Calar Alto Observatory allowed us to reconstruct one single Doppler image for two mapping lines. The Fei-6411 and Cai-6439 maps, in a good agreement, revealed an asymmetric polar cap and several weaker features at lower latitudes. Applying the sheared-image method

The resulting DR parameter, δΩ/Ω≈0.009 of solar type, is compared to previous studies which reported either much stronger shear or comparably weak DR, or just preferred rigid rotation. Theoretical aspects are also considered and discussed.
