Re: ESP32s2 servo SG90

Not sure though if the ESP32-S2 is the best choice for a servo.
ESP32 (classic) has 20 bit resolution, where the S2 only has 14 bit.

You only have a fraction of the full pulse width available, so I guess it will be roughly 9 - 10 bits left for the full range of the servo.

Divide the time between sunrise and noon in N pulses, or let it run a few pulses every minute (or 5 minutes), so it can overcome some friction to start moving.
