They should do, it's the atmosphere that makes the effect, not the eye.

I do not believe that you will b eable to see the stars. I tried to photograph Mars but I could not see it after I loaded the image onto the computer.

the problem you are having is one due to exposure. with standard 35mm film the shutter stays open for a longer ammount of time allowing the visual effect of stars to expose on the film, the CCD on a digital camera takes a very rapid shot and cannot pickup a "clean" image If your camera allows it, try playing with exposure times or see if it has a backlight function.

Hope this helps.

Why stars twinkle.

I photographed mars with my digital camera. It was less than 3 pixels in the image. I must buy a telescope.

Unless you have some kind of expensive camera, you won't even be able to take pics of stars or planets. I've tried.
