    Hey guys, long story short - I am trying to print a big canvas. This is what I was looking at:

    https://spacetelescope.org/images/heic1110a/

    We're looking to print 125cm wide by 150cm tall. The images available (even the largest) are still too low in quality for a canvas this size.

    Any ideas where I could get a really high res shot of this or others from that would translate to 300dpi?

    I do know they exist, I just cannot find them (still looking though!)

    I checked there? I think i've answered my own question. Derp.

    For anyone looking, the spacetelescope.org website has a filter feature where you can filter by resolution. I didn't see that. Eh!

    Here to be precise, NASA's free library of images and videos: https://images.nasa.gov/#/

    They do have high resolution images, you just need to find them.

    Yeah I did have a look there, the spacetelescope.org site still has more super high res photos, but they're limited. I am talking huge files (40 megapixel and above). Maybe my search skills have turned to shit, but I cannot filter by resolution on the NASA Library.
