Number of divisors of A001110(n).
Since each term in A001110 is a square, each term in this sequence is an odd number.
Adding terms to this sequence requires obtaining the prime factorization of terms from A001110. This is facilitated by the observation that A001110(n) = (A000129(n)*A001333(n))^2, but after a few hundred terms, it becomes difficult to obtain the prime factorization of some of the values of A000129(n) and A001333(n).
Obviously, a(1) is the only term whose value is 1. It can be shown (see A081978) that 15 appears only at a(7).
Conjectures:
(1) There exist only 5 triangular numbers with exactly 9 divisors: the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 29th, and 59th terms of A001110.
(2) A001110(4)=41616 is the only triangular number with exactly 45 divisors.
(3) A001110(6)=48024900 is the only triangular number with exactly 405 divisors.
(4) A001110(8)=55420693056 is the only triangular number with exactly 189 divisors.

FORMULA
Conjecture: a(n) == 0 mod 9 for n different from 1 and 7 [tested up to n = 300]. - Ivan N. Ianakiev, May 29 2014
EXAMPLE
a(2) = 9 because A001110(2) = 36 = 2^2 * 3^2 has (2+1)*(2+1) = 9 divisors.
a(4) = 45 because A001110(4) = 41616 = 2^4 * 3^2 * 17^2 has (4+1)*(2+1)*(2+1) divisors.
a(6) = 405 because A001110(6) = 48024900 = 2^2 * 3^4 * 5^2 * 7^2 * 11^2 has (2+1)*(4+1)*(2+1)*(2+1)*(2+1) = 405 divisors.
