This work is devoted to the improvement of the analysis in divergent mode for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and it presents the preliminary step necessary to analyse data taken in this pointing mode. The huge number of telescopes of CTA with respect to existing instruments, will allow taking full advantage of new pointing modes in which telescopes point slightly offset from one another. The divergent pointing mode leads to an increase in the field of view of the sub-array of telescopes with competitive performance compared to normal pointing of the same sub-array.
