About Us

We are dedicated non-professional Astronomers who provide in Northwest Florida a very dark observing site for both Visual and Imaging Astronomers alike to pursue and enjoy the hobby of Astronomical Study.


The observing field is open 365 days a year to all members, membership is free by application.  The late Billy Dodd was the founding member of Chiefland Astronomical Village, he searched long and hard to find a suitable site, and we owe a debt of gratitude to to Billy.


Without his foresight, this observing community may never have come into existence.
