After basics. You can employ quite a lot of different techniques here.

Thanks for the puzzle Mogulmeister. Didn't solve in one step, but used XYs, Skyscraper, U.R. at various stages. Good puzzle!

From the after basics grid:

234 XY wing in c45 removes <4> from r1c5,
also remove <3> from r6c4 as then r9c4=2, r1c3=2, r2c4=2 leads to r9c4 = 3

more basics (to fill in the <3>'s) leads to


Code:

+--------------+-----------+---------+
| 5    8    24 | 249 3  49 | 1  6 7  |
| 17   6    17 | 24  5  8  | 3  9 24 |
| 24   3    9  | 7   16 16 | 5  8 24 |
+--------------+-----------+---------+
| 126  12   8  | 5   7  16 | 9  4 3  |
| 467  479  3  | 8   2  49 | 67 5 1  |
| 1467 1479 5  | 49  16 3  | 67 2 8  |
+--------------+-----------+---------+
| 3    5    6  | 1   4  2  | 8  7 9  |
| 8    14   14 | 6   9  7  | 2  3 5  |
| 9    27   27 | 3   8  5  | 4  1 6  |
+--------------+-----------+---------+

Play this puzzle at the Daily Sudoku site

Then remove <1> from r46c1 as then r2c1=7, r4c2=2, r9c2=7 leads to no <7> in box 4

I used Immpy's skyscraper for 2's in columns 3 and 6 which eliminated the 2's in r7c1 and r9c4 and left the field of play eventually looking like this


Code:
+----------------+--------------+--------------+
| 5    8    24   | 249 3   49   | 1   6   7    |
| 17   6    17   | 24  5   8    | 3   9   24   |
| 24   3    9    | 7   16  16   | 5   8   24   |
+----------------+--------------+--------------+
| 126  12   8    | 5   7   16   | 9   4   3    |
| 467  479  3    | 8   2   49   | 67  5   1    |
| 1467 1479 5    | 49  16  3    | 67  2   8    |
+----------------+--------------+--------------+
| 3    5    6    | 1   4   2    | 8   7   9    |
| 8    14   14   | 6   9   7    | 2   3   5    |
| 9    27   27   | 3   8   5    | 4   1   6    |
+----------------+--------------+--------------+

Then if you go:

(4=1)r8c2-(1=2)r4c2-(2)r9c2=(2)r9c3-(2=4)r1c3 and r8c3 <> 4.

Or you can express this chain in contradictory language:

Put 1 in r8c2 and that puts a 4 in r1c3 and no 4's in box 7 so

r8c2 < > 1 it must be 4 so r8c3 < > 4
