Are you assuming our galaxy has always looked like it does now and has not had a spherical shape at some point in the past?
An image from the distant past should be expected to have fewer stars. If a quasar is an image of the “Big Bang” ( for our galaxy only ) then you could say it is one big star.
An increasing image path length would cause the image to appear to be moving away from us which would cause a red shift. The image need only stay in “orbit” longer. An expanding universe is not necessary.
What do you think?
