It is NOT edited out, or CGI... good grief.
I have heard all the arguments why no stars appear in certain NASA photos, yet I was never satisfied with the answer...
I looked around for some time to find a film like the following video from NASA. This one is perfect because not only does it show stars, but has what I wanted most, a recognizable constellation so there is no question that we are seeing stars.
