What you have to also remember that cameras cannot determine light in the same way in space because light behaves different.
I the same sense a picture on the moon will not reveal any stars and if you try to take a picture of the night sky on earth with a standard camera - you will get nothing but black!
You may be able to see some blue mist in some of the pictures from NASA but not all. I make this quite clear in my initial post. What I am saying is that you ought to see blue mist in ALL the pictures.
We can only take your word for it that you own an observatory and that you have clearly seen the ISS through your telescope.
As for light behaving differently in space I am genuinely baffled. However I would have thought an astronomer could have given a better explanation of what he was talking about in this regard.
