That's it. We thought that CCD is indeed of an eyepiece class device, right?

That is some sort of Eyepiece.... thing is that the "Add CCD" is not very obvious.. the first thing you see when going into that menu is the "Add new eye piece" button. The "Add CCD" button is under the floating menu (if you have it activated.

Would it make sense to have the Add EP  and Add CCD buttons one near eachother ? And keep in the floating menu only the Import/ Export things....

Agreed, that's not ideal. We'll fix that.

By the way, instead of the floating menu, you can use the Android hardware button, or better yet just flick up from below the red line at the bottom of the screen. We implemented those buttons to help pople with devices using virtual buttons at the bottom of the screen, which cannot be painted in red for night mode, so thy have to tape them to prevent night vision degradation.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8" tablet (on this one the Menu button is available) and a Samsung A3 phone. On the phone there are no buttons (there is Home phisical button, Back touch button, Task Manager touch button, so there is no Menu button ).

Yep, that's why we have so many different ways to deal with different devices. I prefer the flick up, even though my Note 3 has the HW menu button (dedicated touch zone), because in the dark I can see where to place my finger over the screen. But I don't like the floating buttons, as they are obscuring the view (even though a little).
