On February 9th, I used a new ITT F4949 ANVIS-9 Pinnacle Goggle in our inventory to compare with the L-3 Infinity Goggles. The Moon was a Waxing Crescent, overhead with 38% illumination. The route was chosen and flown 1.5hrs. after sunset and included as many environments of high and low ambient light condition as possible and comprised flying south of the Boise Airport then into the mountains near Lucky Peak and Arrow Rock Reservoir, returning to Boise over Aldape Summit via downtown Boise.
