Wow, great puzzle Mogulmeister. EXTREME! Will be interested to see what folks come up with for one step solutions. I couldn't do it. Saw multiple ALS scenarios, among other things, though. Challenging puzzle to be sure.

cheers...immp

This one was too tough for me! I couldn't even find the possibility of a single step solution! I did see some back door solutions but of course they're no help when you're trying to solve it properly.

Opted for a two stepper
Code:

| 1678    78     e18   | 4       5       369  |a79     2      378 |
| 3       9       2    | 8       7       1    | 6      4      5   |
| 4678    478     5    | 39      69      2    | 1     i8-9    378 |
+----------------------+----------------------+-------------------+
|g478    g478     6    | 1359    1489    3459 | 34    h18     2   |
| 5       1      f348  | 2       468     346  | 34     7      9   |
| 9       2      f348  | 137     148     347  | 5      6      18  |
+----------------------+----------------------+-------------------+
| 2       3       7    | 6      c149    c459  | 8     b159   b14  |
| 148     5      e1489 | 179     2      d4*79 |b79*    3      6   |
| 14      6       149  | 1579    3       8    | 2     b159    147 |
+----------------------+----------------------+-------------------+

Step 1: (9)r1c7 = (91|54)b9p4283 – (4)r7c56 = (4*)r8c6 – (4*9*=1|8)r81c3 – (8)r56c3 = r4c12 – r4c8 = (8)r3c8 => - 9r3c8
Code:

+-----------------------+--------------------+-----------------+
| 1678     78      e18  | 4      5      b36  | 9      2     37 |
| 3        9        2   | 8      7       1   | 6      4     5  |
| 467      47       5   |a39     69      2   | 1      8     37 |
+-----------------------+--------------------+-----------------+
| 478      478      6   | 5      89      349 | 34     1     2  |
| 5        1       e348 | 2     d68     c346 | 34     7     9  |
| 9        2        34  | 13     14      7   | 5      6     8  |
+-----------------------+--------------------+-----------------+
| 2        3        7   | 6      14      5   | 8      9     14 |
| 148      5       e148 | 1-9    2      f49  | 7      3     6  |
| 14       6        9   | 7      3       8   | 2      5     14 |
+-----------------------+--------------------+-----------------+

Step 2: (9=3)r3c4 – (3=6)r1c6 – r5c6 = (6-8)r5c5 = (814)r518c3 – (4=9)r8c6 => - 9r8c4; stte

This was Ted’s solve in his own words:

“I had another three step solution then reduced it to two steps

xy-wing (79-8)r1c72+r3c8; r1c9,r3c12<>8

AUR(47)r34c12 SIS r3c1=6, r4c12=8
(9=6)r3c5-AUR (47)r34c12[(6)r3c1=(8)r4c12]-r4c8=(8-9)r3c8=r1c7; r1c6,r3c8<>9

(4)r9c1=(4)r9c9-r7c9=r7c5-r6c5=r6c3; r8c3<>4

Note that xy-wing is not necessary:
AUR(47)r34c12 SIS r3c1=6, r34c12=8; r1c6,r3c8<>9
(6)r3c1-(6=9)r3c5
||
(8)r3c12-(8=7=9)r1c27
||
(8)r4c12-r4c8=(8-9)r3c8=r1c7 “

Eureka note - here Ted has used (9) single number in brackets to indicate “is 9”. It is used also to indicate “not 9” at the start of some Eureka chains.
