(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A300759 Multiply a(n) by the first digit of a(n+1) to get a(n+2). The sequence starts with a(1) = 1 and a(2) = 2. 1

EXAMPLE

1*2 is 2; then 2*2 is 4; 2*4 is 8; 4*8 is 32; 8*3 = 24 (as 3 is the first digit of 32); 32*2 = 64 (as 2 is the first digit of 24); etc.

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) option remember; `if`(n<3, n,

      a(n-2)*iquo(a(n-1), 10^(length(a(n-1))-1)))

    end:
