My personal advice, before you spent that much, get her a cheap newtonian telescope between 80-180€. Not too cheap or it will frustrate her to much
and she looses interest.
TS Optics Starscope 1149 Newton, to give you an idea. It can be upgraded to a motorized version.
You need to get into the topic then to show her how she can setup this thing. Also, with light-polution, she´s going to have a hard time even with
the best digital telescope, if it´s intended to be stationed in her room or the house.
At ten years old, could be in 2 months she looses interest. So my final advice is to get a basic telescope and take her onto a camping trip two or
three times to max out the experience. If she´s into it and -important- comes up to you and asks when you go the next time starwatching, sell the
basic one and upgrade to a professional one.
If you get in big and she looses interest you wasted a ton of money for the good will. If she´s into it even though she "struggles" with the manual
one, you know your next investment won´t be a dust collector.
Edit: I see you already have one, did she used this already? Sorry it´s not clear from the OP if she has handled a telescope before.
