I assure you, in a photo like this, with the sunlit Earth and the Hubble, the exposure was too short to capture a galaxy (even the Andromeda). With
the naked eye, you can only see the Andromeda at night, only under some very dark skies, and only when your eyes are adjusted to the dark. If you want
to take a photo of the Andromeda, you need to set your camera up on a tracking mount or a telescope and use a long exposure of several minutes.
If you know anything about astrophotography or photography in general, you'll see that I'm right.
Here's a 2-minute exposure of the Andromeda (stacked 3 times):
The exposure in the OP's photo would have been less than a second, because of the sunlit Earth and Hubble.
