Don't bother, it is silly:
...i actually saw a doc. showing that they black out the back ground and created a fake horizon to hide the huge structures ...
Your question about stars on photos, though....not understanding WHY people don't understand this!
Many just know nothing at all about photography, it seems. You can do this experiment yourself. go outside at night, here on Earth, where there is a
bright light illuminating the area. (Just one, preferably, to simulate the Sun, when above the Lunar horizon, during the Lunar "day".
Set your camera exposure (**) for the light, as in take a picture of a subject...a person, or thing...that is lit up, and be sure to include a good
chunk of the night sky in the background. (**)....if you are using an "Auto" setting, you should understand what the camera is "doing". It can
change both aperture size (opening) and/or exposure interval (time). You may wish to use "manual" settings, to get to know better the different
THEN, look at your image results. No doubt, you will be using a digital camera, nowadays....whereas on Apollo it was film. But, the principals are
the same, regardless.
Do yourself a favor, too, and look for some basic photography lessons or courses....or just info online, for free, if you don't want to pay anything.
You can still learn a LOT for free.....
