The Nearby Supernova Factory reports the discovery of 34 supernovae in images obtained during the months of October and November, using the QUEST-II camera on the Palomar Oschin 48-inch telescope. Subsequent spectra of each target (range 320-1000 nm) obtained with the SuperNova Integral Field Spectrograph on the University of Hawaii 2.2-meter telescope were used for classification. Supernovae discovered on 26 October and 1 November were found in SDSS i-band or r-band images taken in drift-scan mode as a part of the QUEST component of the Palomar-QUEST Consortium. All other supernovae were discovered in point-and-track mode as a part of the JPL Near-Earth Asteroid Tracking component of the Palomar-QUEST Consortium. Four supernovae discovered in October and November that are not listed here have already been published. All Type Ia supernovae listed were discovered at, or after, maximum brightness, at z > 0.08, or both. All magnitudes listed are calibrated to R-band.
