The shot is fired out at a high angle and trajectory. Can only shoot 9 blocks, expensive, make sure the circuit doesn't activate it by accident. Note that the leftmost dispenser is higher than the other dispensers, and that the water should be flowing towards the front of the cannon. Place a button on the back side facing outward from the cannon itself. It will pull away the down-facing charge piston so that it isn't in the way when it's firing.
However, 18 blocks seemed to prove just right. Step 3 Preparing for Repeaters On the right side of your cannon, place two blocks along side of each other 1 down from the wall you built in Step 2. One of the best mounting blocks. Firing angle is roughly 15-20°, making it extremely effective for straight shots at very long range 180+ blocks. This can be good or bad, depending on the situation.
This situation is the same for all mounting blocks, the slab and fence post with pressure plate also follow the same rule. The only downsides are that it requires an active ender portal and you will need to be in creative to survive maximum charge. The concept is the same, but uses sand as a projectile. The half slab will be powered another way, so don't worry about that. In return, the cannon has no problem lobbing shots over terrain and walls. Enchantment Tables fire shots a lot like slabs.

It is a square of 4 cobble, dirt and two TnT next to eachother on it do there is two spaces left. Adjustable, when fully extended it has the same effects of a full block but is more efficient than it and is more versatile, compatible with firing sand or gravel. These cannons will not work on other walls. More of a cannon's blast force is directed forward, but there is still an upward vector that raises the angle of fire to roughly 30°.
Connect the right blocks with the left along the back of the cannon. Do note that the rotating book will not have any effect on the trajectory. What type of cannon is your go-to cannon? If this explanation is unclear, look at this diagram: In dry cannons, a guide block is almost a necessity because dry cannons tend to be inaccurate.
