It seems the Wiki agrees that exposure length is the reason for stars no showing up in the lunar pictures...I imagine focusing is an issue as well. Ihave a stron digital camera If I aim it at the constellation orion which is the most vislble set of stars...It still get a black screen...and it's a 3.2 meg camera...the 4.0 gets nothing either.

My experiences in shooting film, 16, 35mm I think is a similar process I believe anyway. If you are shooting a scene in an office and the outside is bright and sunny, then you have to light the interior like crazy. Say you wanted to shoot two people talking in an office and the view outside the window was bright, harsh sunlit day. You'd either have to double expose or throw an enormous amount of light into the office for the camera to expose the interior of the office and the outside clearly. Now days they'd probably blue screen the windows and add a backdrop or before add a backdrop through rear projection.

I would imagine that exposing in space would be the same, but even more so. The light, say the moon gives off is many, many, many magnitude greater than what the stars behind would give off and you'd have to expose for the moon, if you exposed for the stars, the moon would be blazing hot burn out the stars so they'd double exposure. It's interesting stuff to me. Network is a good movie to watch for this sort of exposure issues. No rear projection in that one, before CGI, it's shot mostly on cloudy, rainy days when exterior exposure is easier to match to interior and it's a great way to sell location, cause it's all in camera.

Basically if you had a real space ship to shoot on, you'd have to add something in the window cause anything outside would be way underexposed. But it's all technical stuff, that I find interesting, but the camera is never what the eye sees so you'll always see stars, just like in a building, you'd see the outside even with the inside, once your eyes adjust!

The Wiki did make mention of the exposure time and the "daylight" range or something like that in refrence to how it was filmed..

Is this the wikipedia article you are referring to?

I assume you mean ships???

I like model work too, but GCI is sadly, cheaper, and in some cases, even better than models.
