Hello :-)

A while ago I looked into cheap projectors for a tiny in-class dome. The reviews are usually not that great.

The somewhat decent home-use ones (Sega Homestar, Pro Home Planetarium) already cost over $100 and are often also just rather simple disc projectors. :-(

The cheaper ones are often just pinhole projectors or have very simple projection discs & optics. And they often just project a random starfield without any actual constellations.

A cheap used projector or one of those "pocket projectors" for under $50, and a small computer (rPi, hdmi android stick) with Stellarium might even be a better choice.
Sadly the cheap projectors have a low native resolution usually 800x480 at best, some just640x480 or even 320x240. And they output only a few hundred lumen, meaning the room has to be completely dark. Some can't project larger than ~70". A few projectors with a bit more resolution, e.g. 800x600 exist. The cheap $30-$40 ones usually have 320x240 and 80-100 lumen or so.

What type of projection are you looking for? (small room... realistically moving constellation/stars)

Just to put it out there: How about a google cardboard viewer (e.g. one of the better plastic ones for $20 or so) and a last-gen smartphone with an app like Solar System VR, Cardboard Space, VR Planetarium, Startracker VR or VR/3D videos?

Does she have a telescope or binoculars? That could be another option (refurbished Skyscanner 100, Celestron Cometron binoculars, and a book such as "Turn left at Orion" or similar).

The Mova planet globes are also nice gifts but usually >$100. Maglev planets are nice too 1 2.

An Orrery is also very nice 1 2.

Darn, there are so many pretty things 1 2 that cost so much :-) Sorry for the link spam.

Clear skies!

Probably more for shipping. Does not qualify for amazon prime.
