Sequence {0,1,0,5,0,25,..} is definitely connected with A001519.
I know nothing about the second binomial transform, but every other term of the first
one {1,8,80,832,8704,...} gives A001519 in a simple way
1/2^0=a(1), 8/2^2=a(2), 80/2^4=a(3), 832/2^6=a(4), 8704/2^8=a(5), etc.,
such that ( probably, one can prove by induction) A001519(n)=4^(- (n-1))*sum{k=1,3,...,2*n-1} 5^((k-1)/2)*C(2*n-1,k). I think that such a formula for F_(2*n-1)
could be known.

Subject: [seqfan] binomial transform in A001519

A comment in A001519 by Witula says
"Moreover, a(n) is the second binomial transform of (0,1,0,5,0,25,...) ..."

However, if I start from [0,1,0,5,0,25...] and take the binomial transform
I get [0,1,2,8,24,80,...]
and after taking again the binomial transform I get
Can someone explain why the comment says that these operations result in
A001519, which is [1,1,2,5,13,34..]?
