Fantastic

Any recommendations on print types that would show the detail best? I'd like the stars to show up well and feel like they might blur/blend in print.

I haven't done much with it, but I hear metal is really good if you are looking for something that showcases vibrant colors and contrast.   Might be worth it.   I think this screams that, and it might make the stars really pop

This. I've done metal prints, they turn out amazing.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

The guy that shot the buck got his grip and grin on metal as well and it looks great. Sounds like thatís the move!

I took your idea and ran with it.  I had a pretty decent aurora shot and a pretty decent silhouette and combined the two.  I do almost zero photoshopping other than cropping and resizing and some white balance,  but it was a fun project.   The fact you were able to do the real deal is pretty awesome!  Good luck on the contest.  I'm not a member, but still went to check it out.   There is some good competition.
