I enjoy doing these VH+ puzzles that immpy posts.

After basics:

Code:
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 8   67  57  | 4   569 2   | 1   356 359 |
| 256 1   4   | 3   569 7   | 8   256 259 |
| 256 9   3   | 168 568 15  | 57  4   257 |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 7   5   6   | 2   3   8   | 4   9   1   |
| 9   4   1   | 5   7   6   | 2   38  38  |
| 3   8   2   | 19  4   19  | 57  57  6   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 56  2   9   | 678 568 4   | 3   1   578 |
| 4   3   8   | 79  1   59  | 6   257 257 |
| 1   67  57  | 68  2   3   | 9   58  4   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+

Then I used the following forcing chain:

8r9c8=(8*-6)r9c4=r9c2-(6=5)r7c1-[r23c1=5*r1c3 -(58*=6)r7c5]-(5*6=9)r1c5-(5*9=3)r1c9-(3=8)r5c9 => r5c8 <> 8; stte.

Good puzzle, I had to break this down as chains stump me a bit

First r7c4 <> 6 XYZ 568
then r3c1 <> 6 using the 6's in c24 leads to
Code:

+-----------+-----------+------------+
| 8   67 57 | 4  59  2  | 1  356 359 |
| 256 1  4  | 3  59  7  | 8  256 259 |
| 25  9  3  | 68 68  15 | 57 4   257 |
+-----------+-----------+------------+
| 7   5  6  | 2  3   8  | 4  9   1   |
| 9   4  1  | 5  7   6  | 2  38  38  |
| 3   8  2  | 19 4   19 | 57 57  6   |
+-----------+-----------+------------+
| 56  2  9  | 78 568 4  | 3  1   578 |
| 4   3  8  | 79 1   59 | 6  257 257 |
| 1   67 57 | 68 2   3  | 9  58  4   |
+-----------+-----------+------------+

Then r1c8 <> 3 as this would give a 7 in both r19c3
