Is XX magnification on 1 scope the same as on another scope?

For example: I got a centerpoint 4-16x-40mm scope with AO and a Bushnell 8x-21mm Binocular.

Both @ 8x and the binocular is closer and the clarity is better. Must be the cheap scope huh? This must be the difference between a cheap scope and an expensive scope such as Burris/nikon/etc

no.

and it can even vary with two different scopes of the same model. which is part of the reason properly working homemade 'big eyes' are so cool.
