We see stars with our eyes, but they are relatively dim. In order to see stars with a camera, you need to let the sensor expose for a long time, no matter how high up you are. The consequence of a long exposure is that brighter objects, like the Moon, Earth, and the spacecraft would be overexposed bright blobs.

You can test this with a camera here on Earth.
