Default Help with large prints

Looking to get some of my photos printed large like on canvas or something else. Since most of which are astrophotography I think it needs to be high resolution. Does canvas printing have high enough res to show all the stars? Or is it better to have it printed on high quality paper and framed nice?
Also where the best place is to have it done. I assume online somewhere.

Some photos for example.

I would think canvas texture would cause a lose of detail with those stars.

You should check out the metal prints. I use Bay Photo. They are really good.

That where they print it out on a sheet of aluminum? I saw that online last night.

Not much help here but awesome ideas for photos. My stepdad and stepbrother are linemen and that transmission line at night is cool, never seen anything like that.

I use Holland Photo and Imaging in Austin. They do all types of prints on all types of materials. Might call them and get their take on what would work the best with your photos.

I use either nations lab or full color for my prints we sell. Full color is in dallas and has very fast turnaround times. Both web based. A metallic finish on those could really cool.

I do photography and have an account on Millers Professional Imaging (printing and print products site for photography businesses). You can sign up on there (free) or I can give you a screenshot of their prices without any markup. They price it so that the photographers can mark it up for clients.
