i thought i'd run this by you guys here in this forum. not sure if it's the right place tho. this is a video montage of images taken from the Mercury bound Messenger space craft. i've been told that stars are too dim for the exposure. i'm not an expert in photography but if you can see stars in the day time thru the atmosphere why wouldn't a camera be able to pic them up in space?

Because they are too dim.

Its the same reason that some films need 'bright sunlight' to work. Film is not as reactive as the chemicals that make up your eye.

On a semi-related note, why don't we see stars in the moon landing? The same reason as here?

For a discussion of this point, and various others relating to allegations of a hoax of the lunar landings, see Phil Plait's "Bad Astronomy" website - specifically, see:
