The misty comma, 67108864/66430125 = [26 -12 -3, is an interval of 17.599 cents, that can be written as (81/80)/(32805/32768)2, (2048/2025)/(32805/32768), (128/125)/(531441/524288). Since these are commas of 12edo, so is the misty comma. It factors into simpler commas as (393216/390625)(1600000/1594323). However, the misty temperament, the 5-limit temperament tempering out the misty comma, is much more accurate than 12 equal can provide, and is also a comma of 87edo and 99edo. This temperament is notably in the schismic-Pythagorean equivalence continuum, with n = 3.
