A red shift only means a stretching of the image path is observed.

If our galaxy is spiraling inward toward its center then the acceleration of the rotation will cause a stretching of the image path as it orbits the galaxy.

If I assume the images are reflections then...

As you view images farther and farther away you must observe images which originated further back in time.

It would stand to reason if there was a “Big Bang” it would give off enough energy you would see its reflection.
A quasar would seem to match the expected results from a “Big Bang” wouldn’t you agree?

As to the number of stars in a galaxy.
If with reasonable certainty the age of an image can be determined without using the assumption that space if flat...
and the possibility of distortion of the
image has been accounted for...
and the number of stars can be shown to be vastly different then I would concede that our galaxy is not closed.

I am not sure I am answering your questions.

Perhaps I should used the model to make some predictions which could be proven.

Would that be a better approach?
