**1783 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **1783edo** or **1783ed2**), also called **1783-tone equal temperament** (**1783tet**) or **1783 equal temperament** (**1783et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1783 equal parts of about 0.673 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/1783}, or the 1783rd root of 2.

1783edo is a very strong 5-limit system, with a lower 5-limit relative error than anything until 2513. It is consistent to the 9-odd-limit, but there is a large relative delta for the harmonic 7. Together with decent approximations to 11, 13, 17, and 19, it makes for a good no-7 19-limit tuning.

In the 5-limit the equal temperament tempers out the monzisma, [54 -37 2⟩; egads, [-36 -52 51⟩; gross, [144 -22 -47⟩; and pirate, [-90 -15 49⟩.

Using the patent val, it tempers out 2460375/2458624 in the 7-limit; 3025/3024 and 180224/180075 in the 11-limit; 1716/1715 and 4096/4095 in the 13-limit. The alternative 1783d val tempers out 4375/4374 in the 7-limit; 41503/41472 and 160083/160000 in the 11-limit; 10648/10647 in the 13-limit.
