I’m struggling a little bit with how to properly set up a watch hand image to rotate in sync with moon phases. I used an old Armitron watch as a guide to make my first watch face in GWS. Since the watch hand image requires two full moons, I set the end value in Rotation Properties to 56 instead of 28. This seems to work to some degree, but when I manually enter the next few full moon dates and times, the image seems to lag behind, i.e. instead of a straight-up full moon, the moon is not quite in the center just yet. With each full moon test of upcoming months, it seems to get further behind each time.
I experimented with other end values, but nothing seems to work. First of all, am I correct in thinking that when I manually enter dates and times for the future, GWS will accurately show the moon phase? I do have the image set so there is a full moon on the next date (9/2/20). From the next full moon and on to others, I don’t get a full moon position.
One of the other end values I tried was 59 since the actual moon cycle is 29.5 days, not 28. However, this doesn’t seem to work either, at least based on setting dates in GWS.
Perhaps I have this all wrong. Any help will be appreciated.
