There is a quite famous one from Apollo 17, it has the Earth, the US flag and I think Jack Schmitt.

Ya know, I wondered what the hell they were talking about. Then I dusted my computer screen and sure enough - there are no stars in the pictures.

As far as I know, stars are only visible to astronauts on the night side of the Earth (or moon).

You bet, and for the same reason there are no stars in daylight outdoor pictures here on earth....
