42EDT is the equal division of the third harmonic into 42 parts of 45.2846 cents each, corresponding to 26.4990 edo. It is contorted in the no-twos 17-limit, tempering out 77/75, 119/117, 147/143, 169/165, and 245/243. Using the patent val, it tempers out 363/361 in the 19-limit; 117/115, 119/115, 255/253, 299/297, and 391/375 in the 23-limit (no-twos subgroup). It entirely misses 2/1, but nails the "double octave" 4/1, so it strongly resembles the scale with generator 2\53 of an octave.
